This template automatically includes the user's user-name in the greeting, and adds an optional personalized comment.

This template should only be used by substitution: {{subst:welcomeplus}}.

It will not work properly if used by reference: {{welcomeplus}}.

A personalized comment can be included by adding it as a paramter, e.g. {{subst:welcomeplus|Thanks for your contributions to the article for [[Bolivia]].}}. This comment will be added to the first line of the message, right after the greeting. If you don't include a parameter, the template will leave {{{1|}}} in its place, which will not show up when simply reading the page, but will be visible when the user edits their User_talk page. To prevent that, add a blank parameter: {{subst:welcomeplus|}}.

emphasize custom message?[edit]

I wonder if we can (and should) emphasize the custom message? It's personal most of the time, and we'd better add emphasis to it. Can we use bold for it (or mark it as black, while making the rest of the article in dark grey)?

At the very least, we definitely should put the message to a separate paragraph--no objections here? --DenisYurkin 16:03, 16 March 2010 (EDT)

Plunged forward. --DenisYurkin 15:50, 8 April 2010 (EDT)
