In events where it is uncertain if a act falls under these crimes, consult with an admin and they will decide if it is severe enough or not.

As a rule, all internet related pages are banned, except in the cases of cybercrime.

Events should only get a page where it is impossible to clearly tell all the information with only articles on the person(s) responsible. They may not have been identified or there may be too many of them for all the articles to tell the story in its entirety.

The crime must be mentioned on media (this means news, books, etc.) except for the individual/organization who lived before the media (via historical accounts). This means that random people (especially internet ones) are not notable.
