I have the problem that

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper]{article}
\title{A great title \thanks{XYZ}}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\end{document}

gives a footnote with symbol (*) which I want to have, but when giving

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper, titlepage]{article}

the * is changed to a 1. I want to have the title page with the star, not with the 1. Is this possible?

Quick and dirty solution: Change the format of the footnote counter to be a star:

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper, titlepage]{article}
\title{A great title \thanks{XYZ}}
\begin{document}
\begingroup
\renewcommand\thefootnote{*}
\maketitle
\setcounter{footnote}{0}
\endgroup
\end{document}
