I'm currently a 3th year student in application development and I am working on project for school that would monitor users and make graphs, etc. of of their progress. I am using the Runescape hiscore API to get the levels for users, but since a couple of weeks it seems to work not as good anymore as it did before. Did anything change and could someone tell me how to fix it.
Thank in advance.
By the way the api that I'm talking about is this one: https://secure.runescape.com/m=hiscore/index_lite.ws?player=
Seems to work fine for me but i found a weird thing. If you look at the output from the api we get 59 rows, last one i empty. We have 28 skills (if we include total level as a skill). That means we get 58 - 28 (30) activity/minigame ranks but the Runescape hiscore only shows 28.

Is it not returning the correct information?
Does it periodically not return any information?
What specifically is not working as well as before?
I noticed a few of my queries to the hiscores API taking a bit longer than usual to return starting a few weeks ago, but they would eventually complete, so the only change I had to make was just to increase my connection timeout in my application for it to continue working properly.
