Add a hidden comment to WikiLove's output stating where it came from
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

As suggested:

the wikitext emitted from the WikiLove tool should have a comment in it to say it was produced by the WikiLove tool with some suitable link, so it educates people to use the tool

I.e. WikiLove should automatically add a hidden comment after the user's signature, such as:
<!-- message sent using the WikiLove tool. Click the ♥ at the top of userpages to send WikiLove. -->
or similar.

Because WikiLove does not include any comment that it is a tool creates the problem that even not-so-users copy one manually and then break the syntax when they edit it to suit their purpose. So a comment would be a helpful way to get them to use the tool instead of trying to do it manually. It should include a pointer to the instructions to enable WikiLove (as it is a preference so it may not be enabled for all users).

Hey there, I would like to take up this issue if it is free to work upon. This might help me get started and set up the development environment. Also, any advice on where and how to get started with the implementation is also most welcome. Thanks.
