I'd like to have three authors that use the same footnote for their \thanks identifier (they are at the same university, and don't need separate affiliation notes). I've read one of the solutions proposed in How to write a footnnote attached to the author in a LaTeX paper?, but the last solution (using recalled footnotes) only works for two authors.
So an example: I'd like to have
Author1* and Author2* and Author3*
- University of Podunk, Timbuktoo.
