To edit the page anonymously, do not be logged in.

Recent revisions can be seen by clicking the History button at the bottom of the page. If you register for an account on the wiki and login, you can also Monitor the page by clicking on the eyeball in the upper right and receive email notifications of changes. (An RSS feed of recent changes  is in progress.)

You can add new rows by right clicking within the table.

Please include a link to the job when adding it to the list.

If possible, include names and dates when offers are made and accepted, since this helps to differentiate wrong rumors from right ones. Use boldface to indicate when a position has been accepted.

An old revision should not be restored at any time! Unless, of course, you manage to make so many errors while editing the page that you can’t fix them all one by one. Then you can go back by one revision. If you go back by more you’ve also erased other people’s rumors inadvertently.

If a rumor you put on keeps getting removed by someone else (and that rumor is not about you) please respect that person’s wishes—they might have reasons to keep it private and/or your rumor might be wrong.

Prior experience shows that the rumor page is not 100% accurate. If you need to make an important time-critical decision based on the status of a job opening, we strongly encourage you to get your information from the official search committee, not this page.

We have chosen to adopt a hands-off policy for the Rumor Mill; however, you may contact admin at astrobetter.com for technical difficulties.
