Snail Mail Algorithm

I drew this for an exercise about flowing charts. What do you think about?  


I would heard your ideas about changes or additions it in order to improve the idea of the snail mail algorithm.

    1. Me too (usually). But this part is just for snail mail addicts. Maybe can I add a question: "Are you a mail addict?" If yes...
      :D

  3. I do that too anna m.
    The question is how long do you wait until you presume it is either lost or other, and what to do then - contact or send a small note asking? I've just had a pen pal ask if I received a letter, which I haven't yet, so mail can go missing :(

    1. You're right: that's THE question. I have received letters five months after sending (so both the sender and I, obviously, thought they were lost. Some days ago I received a postcard... after one year! (I am going to publish it soon here).

  4. I was missing the address-part-of-the-process, too :-) And maybe add 'write the sender's address', too? Otherwise it increases the risk that you'll be waiting in vain for a reply :-)

    And I eould draw a line, via the left, from the box 'post the letter' upwards to the start again: real snail mail addicts start to write a new letter (maybe to an other recipient, but they won't wait for one's answer before they repeat the whole process, don't you think so? :-)

    Maybe add: close the envelope? (

    1. The address and closing the envelope are very important steps... How could I forget them? ;)

      That is supposed to describe the process for "normal people" and not "mail addicts". But maybe everybody who sends letters nowadays is sort of mail addict. So, as I wrote to Anna, maybe I should add a question: "Are you a mail addict?" If yes... :D

  5. (And you can add the additional option, to personalize the envelope by adding... (drawings, stoickers, washi tape etc)).

    Forgot to say that I love your flow chart!!

    An other option could be a line downward, from 'post the letter', to some text like 'procedure passed/fulfilled succesfully' or 'mission accomplished', in case it should not only be a closed loop like it is now. But that depends on the order you got.

    1. And also: "Are you a mail artist?". If yes...

      Thanks for your suggestions, Heleen! Very useful. I'm going to draw a more complicated version of the flow chart :)
