Remove redundant header on account creation success

As seen in the attached screenshot, the success page post-registration currently uses the same "Login successful" header as login.

That's slightly weird, since the user didn't log in, but registered. The page already includes another header below it which declares, "Welcome, $1!" which is much more appropriate, so let's replace the current header with that.

gerrit 34063 fixes this. It splits the current welcomecreation message into a separate welcomeuser title and welcomecreation-agora that drops the duplicate "== Welcome, $1 ==" heading.

E3's onboarding work also requires rework of the welcomecreation message.

Status Merged

Gerrit change #34665 improves the fix, switching to a new welcomecreation-msg. I hope to backport it to 1.21wmf5 before that rolls out on additional wikis.

Merged. On wikis with a custom MediaWiki:welcomecreation message, an admin should move the message to welcomecreation-msg when 1.21wmf5 is deployed

I'm not sure if it's applicable, but this would be better with gender support. Is it possible that gender is already specified by the time this message is presented?

That is right, see bug 30442. Maybe note that on the bug, so a developer can fix it or create a new bug with dependency.
