4300 ligatures etc and some serious WP:OR[edit]

All this zillion compounding and ligatures based on someone's OR and www.sanskritweb.net as source is WP:Undue, shall I say highly undue. That is not how Devanagari has been or is in mainstream use. I do not understand the rationale for including any of this fluff in this encyclopedic article per wikipedia community agreed guidelines. If someone has reasons, or a source, let us discuss them please. Ms Sarah Welch (talk) 17:58, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

There should be at least an explanation of the term[edit]

The article gives some explanations to the second part of the name, telling that nagari means something like civic script. What deva stands for, i.e. divine, is not said. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:16B8:467C:EA00:2DD6:DCCC:CD7B:E12B (talk) 18:58, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

Symmetry?[edit]

The introductory paragraph says this script has a preference for rounded symmetrical shapes, yet none of the characters shown is in anyways symmetrical. Unless there is a different idea about what symmetry is than I have. Wschart (talk) 17:42, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

‎Biconsonantal conjuncts?[edit]

Why were the biconsonantal conjunt tables removed? This was the only place on the web I had found a detailed list of the main conjuncts in proper unicode. Can the deletion of these be undone? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2605:E000:4DC2:1500:8D25:893F:4B3E:434B (talk) 21:00, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
