"Doric" refers to a cultural group of Greeks, as does Ionic order. "Dorus" is an invented eponym for these Greeks. "Mother mushroom" is apparently a private dream. --Wetman (talk) 18:29, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Adult supervision of this article is urgently requested. The account O8TY was opened for the purpose of inserting this intentionally disruptive nonsense: see its Contributions History.--Wetman (talk) 23:58, 26 July 2008 (UTC)--Wetman (talk) 23:58, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

"Fungitecture™" [sic][edit]

The following external link has been inserted here and at various other articles: A sense of what's up with this ican be had from the following introductory statement: "The term Fungitecture was coined to describe the peculiar resemblance between certain ancient styles of monumental architecture and the fruit of one or other species of fungus. However, Fungitecture also serves as an umbrella term covering a much wider field of human endeavour, wherever fungus imagery, lore or substance may have been invoked." There are no references to any responsible peer-reviewed literature, needless to say. This does not show Wikipedia in a flattering light, in my opinion.--Wetman (talk) 01:59, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

The name "Fungitecture" is a trademark and must be recognised as such. O8TY (talk) 10:04, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

inspiring modern art[edit] Hansmeyer developed his concept by taking a traditional Doric column and feeding the form into his computer where his subdivision algorithm could go to work on it.

This article has several factual errors. There are 2 grooves, not 3 in a triglyph. There are 3 raised portions, and 2 grooves.

Also the Doric order was widely used in interior design in architecture in the UK and North America by the 1740s or so. So its revival was long before the early 19th c. "Greek Revival" period. I'm sure any architectural historian could point to dozens of examples of the use of Doric in the middle 18th c.

Pt 1 changed. On pt 2, are there really many that are fully Doric rather than informal Tuscan? In America??? Johnbod (talk) 17:24, 4 March 2016 (UTC)

Conflict with remark on another page[edit]

This page says of Doric, "It was the earliest and in its essence the simplest of the orders," and yet the page linked in the same paragraph says in section 3, "Sometimes the Doric order is considered the earliest order, but there is no evidence to support this. Rather, the Doric and Ionic orders seem to have appeared at around the same time, the Ionic in eastern Greece and the Doric in the west and mainland." Neither statement is given citation, I can't confirm which is right, but a consistent position should be taken, even if that is one of uncertainty. --Dean Sayers — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:39, 2 September 2017 (UTC)

Good catch! The other article you refer to is Classical order. I'll look into this when I can, but likely someone else will get there first. RivertorchFIREWATER 15:59, 2 September 2017 (UTC)
