RuleOfOrder

If this is the same as as an ordering method or convention then:

First come, first served is a type of ordering convention. Geeks often use the acronyms FIFO for first in first out (the same as first come, first served), and FILO for first in last out.

All other ordering methods need some form of processing to give all memebers of a queue their order out of the queue.

Random order is another way to order elements, often applied to situations where we fear that human factors might skew the selection.

Example: In the film "Looking For Private Ryan" it is implied at the beginning that they have all drawn lots by chance to see what is the order of the poor squaddies have to try to get off the landing craft onto the beaches. The film leaves us in no doubt as to why RandomOrder? was really the only way to order this lethal queue.
