I tried to use IFTTT to try and query for specific hashtag-marked edits, however the trigger always fails due to an issue it has with the hashtag tool.

Here's the applet I used. I don't believe the applet I created is public, but here's the link anyway. https://ifttt.com/applets/112175283d-if-wp-defcon-goes-to-defcon-1-then-email-me
Here's the contents of the applet, if you want to reproduce it.
The IFTTT feature was implemented as direct interaction with the hashtags database on ToolsDB. Now that the live database has moved away from ToolsDB one of two things would be needed to fix this:
Add API endpoint(s) to https://hashtags.wmcloud.org/ that can be used to replace the prior database queries.
API is available:
'https://hashtags.wmflabs.org/json/?query=%s&project=%s&startdate=%s' % (HASHTAG, WIKI, self.startdate)
