Layman-friendly logo

"Layman-friendly" is an optional quality criterion of Tournesol 🌻.

It aims to identify contents that would be suitable to those with very limited prior knowledge. When judging this feature, contributors are encouraged to reflect on the suitability of the content to their grandparents or to their 5-year-old nephew.

Contents that score high on "layman-friendly" should be accessible to a very large audience.
