No refs, stub[edit]

The article is a bit of a joke as it stands. I'm not sure it hurts any to include this photo of someone's comments on the business.

Communication Planning[edit]

Communication Planning uses traditional and social media to reach policy or program audiences. [1] Communication planning can be for the internal and/or external audiences of an organization. [2] Katutubongpeminista (talk) 07:02, 4 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Cutting and pasting material into the talk page it not the same as discussing it. Please stop edding warring to include this essay material about communications planning - it isn't well written, and I do not believe belabouring such a minor example on this article is an improvement. - MrOllie (talk) 11:46, 4 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

According to User_talk:Katutubongpeminista#Class?, a PhD class have decided or been instructed to all write something about "communication planning" in this article. The content added in this way has been removed by other editors, but added back again by the students. The article has now been temporarily protected for seven days to prevent immediate further edits. If the PhD class has a teacher, they should read Wikipedia:Education program before asking students to make particular edits to Wikipedia. --Belbury (talk) 12:23, 4 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Under "public Policy" topic: Requesting to add this sentence before the statement, "Public policy planning includes..."

Public policy is a collection of government-decided rules, standards, and acts that benefit the public. Public policy determines which laws are approved, where financing flows, and which issues interest the public. Policymaking is a continuous activity with no obvious beginning or ending, since judgments regarding who will gain from policies and who will face any burdens are constantly examined, reconsidered, and amended.[1] Nhelarmstrong (talk) 22:46, 4 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Not done for now: Your paraphrasing is far too close to the source given, so you'll have to rewrite it in a way that will not violate WP:CLOSEPARAPHRASING. ScottishFinnishRadish (talk) 22:53, 4 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is my revised statement:

Public Policy refers to the body of laws, regulations, and other governmental decrees that are intended to serve the general public. As a result of public policy, some laws are passed, certain sources of funding are favored, and certain topics get widespread attention. Judgments about who will benefit from policies and who will bear any liabilities are continually studied, revised, and altered, making policymaking a continuous process with no evident beginning or end.

Under the topic "Public Policy", before the statement "Public policy planning includes..."

Policies include laws, rules, decisions, and commands. Public policy is a collection of efforts to tackle social issues via policy-making[1]. Every policy is crafted with a specific goal in mind in order to address an issue that has been prioritized by the government.  As such, they stand for the political-administrative system's reaction to an unpalatable aspect of society.

Done. Corresponds to sources. Paraphrased a bit. Rollo (talk) 22:55, 9 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Some muttering about reasons to improve this page[edit]

I'd like it if this page were more complete. Let me write to myself about why I think this is the case to motivate myself and perhaps others. One of the topics I am interested in writing about on wikipedia is Agency and self identity. I have worked a little on the topic. I've also worked a bit on goals. I feel that part of being a human is being able to work out what you want, what you should want, how it is distinct from other people, and how to best achieve it in the world. Additionally, I think it's important to separate this from the things that people might try to make you do.

I would like to think wikipedia can go some way to helping people. At the moment, such goals are often served by business guides, self-help books and at times politically or social ideologies - unfortunately such guides can often have implicit motivations that are not aligned with the individual or just be *wrong* and not have good evidence. It would be great if this page could include material that is as unbiased as possible and which has acheived some sort of analysis. In doing so there is a risk of not providing readers with something that is actionable or simple.

If this page not being more complete we turn people over to these other sources, or when these other sources don't do what they should do provide no solution. Wikipedia is created by amateurs who will naturally work on what they are interested in, there is no reason that the article *should* be any different from what it is but I would like to make it so.Talpedia 20:45, 9 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
