As the 2017 Faculty Jobs Open Thread has gotten longer, the Blogger software that this blog is run on has added a new wrinkle: when you initially load the thread, it loads only the first ~220 comments and then has a "load more" button near the bottom of the page near the comment box. Only after pressing that button does it load the latest comments.
I'm really sorry about this, especially since there's nothing I can do about it.
I'm asking you to vote, either in the comments to this post, the comments to the Open Thread or by e-mail to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to tell me if you'd like a new Open Thread. If there is an overwhelming majority that wants a new thread, I'll be closing the old one to new comments and opening a new one.
Again, my apologies for this latest wrinkle. Thanks for hanging in there.
