Add custom text field for welcomes #204

From WT:TW:

I would like the ability to include additional text with a welcome. For warnings, there's an "Optional message" field, and it would be great to have this capability for welcomes too. While the additional text is a parameter built into the warning templates, for welcomes it would be a Twinkle extension. This text could be used, for example, to especially praise something the user did right, or to explain the correct way to do something they did which was not-quite-right. Currently, one would have to either manually issue the welcome and include the desired text, or issue a welcome with Twinkle and perform a second, manual edit to add the text.

I'm going to close this. I don't think it is a good idea, as the custom text just gets lost among the boilerplate of the welcome. If you have something to say, you should welcome the user, then add a new section to the user's talk page with your message.
