Recently, our help center was edited to add a banner like thing on its top. Lines for the scope of our site and guidelines about asking and answering were added to guide the users to appropriate help center pages.
But I believe this change will give only a half result because the on-topic is not up to date. All the on-topic and off-topic reasons are not listed in the on-topic page. Adding more and more questions in the banner will take more space on the screen and decrease the probability of reading the main content of help center pages (That is the reason Stack Exchange has reduced the space for the banners recently and made them closable after reading). The main focus should be on the help center.
On-topic and off-topic pages should give a clear idea about what we can ask and what we can't ask on the site. It helps users while asking questions and for the reviewers while closing and reopening questions. I propose following changes.
Adding Should we close questions related to Sanskrit language and grammar as off-topic? under off-topic questions with a sentence. "Pure Sanskrit language questions are off-topic" or something like that.
Adding a line about Ayurveda. It is a general notion among people that Ayurveda is a Hindu science of treating people. It is on-topic upto some extent. So, there should be mention of Ayurveda with a line "Ayurveda is partially accepted here" and a link to the question on meta for better understanding.
Stack Exchange help center pages by default use faq from Meta Stack Exchange for better understanding of the articles. Our site also has a great faq (pointed out by Jon Ericson♦ in one of their answers). Why not we also do the same? So, I suggest Guidelines for new users answering questions into How to answer page in a bullet point.
All the on-topic and off-topic reasons for our site are given in the same page i.e., " What topics can I ask about here?" and off-topic page is provided with the default reasons of Stack Exchange. So, there is not much point in putting "What topic should I avoid asking?" at the top (implemented on many other sites on the network). The on-topic page should be moved to the top of Asking section. It improves the chances of reading that page.
The above changes will make the users give a clearer idea on what we can ask and what we can't. Moving important pages upwards will improve user interface.
Can this be implemented?
