I am alive. what is it that you would like to know?
Parts of my excite page is not changing from day to day. What’s up with that?
I’ve had the same problem. The sports module doesn’t update the scores for days. I’ve switched to Yahoo.
That’s my problem also. The scores of both baseball and football are not listed. How in the world do you contact someone at Excite to find out what the problem is? Hey, you guys at Excite, what’s the problem? Do you just want more people switching to Yahoo?
Switch to Yahoo. There’s no comparison. Excite is going down the tubes. Fast. Even the email now sucks.
We have used Excite for about ten years for our home page. During that time there have been a number of owners,and the information provided has changed more so in the past year.Now we notice that the news articles do not change as often as they once did…..what is going on? Should we be considering changing to another page where the news is not as ho hum? So sorry to see this occur.

my Excite home page won’t come up at all, message says “Cannot find server.” What to do?
I’m having the same problem. I don’t think the Entertainment news has changed in at least the last 2 months. I’m looking for a new page myself.
my excite page is totally gone need help
why has my account been deactivated? 9/13/2010 !
My home page has not changed, last changed was sept 13, why??
Excite has risen to a new level of SUCK. I used to have my stocks and could see ups and downs each day. They eliminated that. Now the stupid news has not changed since Sept 17. I go there for NEWS not HISTORY. Goodbye EXCITE!!!
Not even an explanation from Excite as to why or when updates will resume. I agree with therman19, Excite sucks and I’m no longer interested in resolving this issue, it’s time to move on and find another home page.
Same thing. I just came to this page to try to figure out why I have the same friggin’ news every day. Unbelievable. I’ve used this site for about 12 years and if they can’t be bothered to provide updated news, why the hell am I using it?
It looks like Excite has regressed again. It partially works, but Weather and Opinion aren’t updating. Posts asking for help are being responded to [promptly] by “we are aware of the problem and apologize”. I’m going to hang tough for a while to see if it gets better.
Same here. I’ve lost several things on Excite that I really enjoyed. I hope Excite isn’t dying. I’ve used Excite forever and really enjoy it. I’ll stick around for a while longer.
I have had my email address and password since I first got a computer and it hasn’t changed, all of a sudden my password is incorrect and I can’t get in. Why should I have to change it now?
I too have used Excite as my Homepage for God knows how many years & now it is putting Ads on top of my Bookmarks columns — about ready to start looking elsewhere for a new HomePage
The problem still exists in April 2013. Must be that the
staff took a few days off. Pretty poor. Guess I need to get away
from Excite as my home page.
Me too. Had the same problem for several days now. Excite RIP.
Any suggestions for a different website?
Maybe we should have clicked on those sponsored links more often.
It was only a minor inconvenience when I lost Entertainment news; losing Sports news was a little more of an impact; but now no news newer than Mandela’s (bless him) release from the hospital … I’m worried.
Sure, excite.com as a portal is old school, but if I want color photos, unasked-for audio and such, I can navigate to sites that provide those things.
I haven’t tried more than 4 or 5 alternative sites, but nothing compares with Excite’s ease when it comes to adding content or adjusting the layout just as I wish.
But then, I never thought I could get along without hotbot.com as a search engine, but Google is working just fine for me … at least until November of this year.
Still no weather updates May 24, 2013-guess we will remember the good old days Excite…for awhile anyway
Excite video doent work on their homepage
The weather report on our Excite homepage is from last winter!!! What the hell is up with that!!! Has stayed the same for 8 months! Snow and freezing in WI every day for 8 months..???? Leaving Excite…very poor reporting on that homepage…sports and all stays the same for weeks!
I always loved Excite as my homepage having used it since 1996. But now that it’s not being updated, I guess I’ll have to look for something new.
