Problem in beginning Node.js tutorial

The tutorial painstakingly builds a node JSON query upon the membership database at teamtreehouse using the form "membername".json to return badges and point totals.

Here's the most basic query:

const username = "somebody"; const request = https.get('https://teamtreehouse.com/${username}.json', response => {

response.on('data', data => {

  console.log('data: ', data.toString());                      



However the return is "data: not found" for any name submitted. I have initially tried the instructor's name, as in the tutorial, then other membership names used later, and then, in desperation, current account names pulled from code behind the message board.

Has there been a change in the storage location of .json data for the membership since this tutorial was posted???
