On April 1st the Nihon Ki'in upgraded its website. At the same time it changed the structure of the site, breaking all our past links to stories about tournaments (at least).

Previously stories used to be in a date-based structure .../match/YYYY/MM/asdfgh.html
This has been changed to .../match_news/match_info/asdfgh.html
So far in my checking all the final documents seem to be unchanged and substituting 'match_news/match_info' for the original 'match/YYYY/MM' finds the original article.

Edit: At least some .../news/YYYY/MM/qwerty.html links have turned into .../event/events/qwerty.html links. However, some stories that were not about 'events' seem to have ended up in different categories. :sad:

Online playing schedule: Every tenth February 29th from 20:00-20:01 (if time permits)
Maybe April 1st is significant.

Unfortunately it is due to the start of Japan's fiscal year rather than just an April Fools joke. :-|
