This event requires the GUILD_MEMBERS intent to be enabled.
createDefault(String) and createLight(String) disable this by default!

Additionally, this event requires the MemberCachePolicy to cache the updated members. Discord does not specifically tell us about the updates, but merely tells us the member was updated and gives us the updated member object. In order to fire a specific event like this we need to have the old member cached to compare against.
