  • Comment: In 1856, Thomas Montgomerie climbed Harmukh and sketched a peak some 250 km to the north labelled with K2, a name that still exists.

  • Symbol delete vote.svg Unfortunately, this article does not meet the fundamental requirement that the article must be either new or expanded five times within the past five days. Even if it had been nominated on April 24, it wouldn't have met the expansion requirements, having increased from 1940 characters to 2820 characters, which is not even close to the 9700 needed. The article would have qualified during its May 2011 expansion, but it wasn't nominated then. BlueMoonset (talk) 15:40, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Comment: the prose “Harmukh is the mountain peak from which the world‘s 2nd highest peak K2 was discovered“, (the intresting sentence) was added by myself on April 24. It wasn‘t expanded 5 times and is some old... but the information is the valuable one .... there should be some way to include  MehrajMir ' (Talk) 16:09, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
  • If you will look on the main page of Wikipedia, it says "From Wikipedia's newest content". April 24 is over two months old. This is simply not the place for a new interesting sentence. As the link makes clear, it's for new articles, or for existing articles that are newly expanded to at least five times their length prior to that expansion.

  • I think the rules are made by Users. 2 months old is still in infancy. If we arrive at a consensus, then it may be possible to include such informative hooks.  MehrajMir ' (Talk)
