    Enhance shutdown command with reason

    To make the shutdown system more blizzlike, we should add a reason to the shutdown system

    This would be done with an additional command like ".server shutdownreason [reason text]"

    The reason would appear before the shutdown timer (and in yellow like the shutdown time messages).

    [SERVER] Shutdown in 15 Minute(s)[/QUOTE]

    The reason would be repeated again at 10, 5 and 1 minutes.

    This is from memory of playing on a retail server and how it was at least in wrath of the lich king.

    We may update the existing server shutdown command with a flag at the end representing a standard type message. I would prefer that one rather than duplicating again and again shutdown commands.

    Would you define them ?

    The idea is to make this as blizzard like as possible. Blizzard used to use both methods of shutdown - Those with reasons and without.

    The reasons were different each time, reasons also came up for simple restarts if they were hotfixing bugs.

    @madmaxIs it still needed ? 

    I think I can achieve it pretty easily but is it ok to set a default shutdown message in the config file and add possibility to override it with a string message".

    Not really a priority but is a nice feature to have!
