I thought that something had been done to prevent new editors from being shown the "suggest edit" recommendation to add a short description template to articles, but it is still happening, with poor results. See links in this thread:
Tickets T227623 and T279702 have some previous conversation about this problem, but it has not been resolved. See the thread for examples that might help developers apply additional limits to this mistake-prone feature. There is already a short description import suggestion tool on en.WP at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Shortdesc_helper. Suggesting an article and hoping that an inexperienced (or brand-new!) editor will make up a good short description from scratch with no guidance is probably not wise. Has any QA analysis been done on the SDs created with this tool (including revert percentages) to see what percentage of them are good?
