On further further experimentation, it appears that most of the problem came from using ~~~~~ instead of ~~~~! Using the standard 4 tildes, which we had been avoiding to have a custom signature, the first few words of the subject does now show up in the email message.
OK, on further experimentation, it communicates the subject header to email if it has a character length of 10 or fewer, and only if there is no message body. If there is a message body, it communicates the first 150 characters to email (removing the last 3 with an "..."), and it seems to fail if there are fancy templates involved.
Two MassMessages I sent on May 25 https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Pharos&oldid=prev&diff=1089767985 and https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Pharos&oldid=prev&diff=1089772397 worked correctly in terms of posting the section header in the email (yes, the latter was the infamous accidental "Bison" stampede). I get the impression that there is perhaps a 10-character limit to section headers. I have not been able to replicate this functionality since, no matter the number of characters, have there been some technical changes recently?

Did some late-night hacking with @jeremyb recently, and was able to confirm that a message with a subject header that is too long for MassMessage fails to show in the email notification, but that the exact same message works for a user manually leaving it. Email notification only works on MassMessage if the header is very short.

I went through my email inbox, it started working (displaying the section header in the email) sometime in the period between 5/12/15 and 6/28/15, and stopped working sometime in the period between 4/27/2016 and 5/21/2016. @Legoktm do you recall what changes you might have made about these times?

It loads briefly as plain text, then we get the blank blue boxes, so this is aparently a rendering issue somewhere.

my mistake, this is a duplicate of T260043 which I vreated earlier

Note https://bitbucket.org/magnusmanske/reasonator/issues/47/incorporate-wikispore-information and that T231899 is now resolved.
Note that the secondary one, spore: was subsequently removed due to a couple of Wikipedia article conflicts.
Are the icon and the wordmark supposed to be of certain dimensions? Are we looking for something other than literally just taking a horizontal cut of the scissors to the old SVG?
I mean specifically the Greenhouse is in the main namespace, and I kind of like it there, but we don't want the sig button on every main namespace page.

Is there a way to do this just on a specific page or a handful of pages, not on a whole namespace?

Is there a reason why incubator: doesn't work? This is sort of our twin wiki in the movement, so would be helpful to compare Main Pages, etc.

It does appear in a Google search now, but looks a bit clunky:

Is this viable now that T239660 is resolved?

@Zblace Wait, are you asking about a subdomain, or just about a namespace?

Maybe we should add one additional custom interwiki shortcut, to the Wikispore test wiki, presumably test:

Would be wonderful if we could have player conversations too, either by chat, or even better by video like Wikimedia Meet.
There are 6 cards in a hand and 80+ cards in a deck. I believe @Spiritia has used a double deck at Wikimania. The recommended number of players is 3-6, but we've done more. Maybe we could query various decks based on GLAM collection or SPARQL query.

As to restricting access, what if we say that every Wikimedia chapter or usergroup has the right to use the tool, and can give access to host calls to 5 of its designated members? I could help administer a process for this on meta.

This is different from T231989, which is about getting an interwiki shortcut from WMF sites to Wikispore.
