I'm new to WB (not SE), and I've posted a couple of answers, but I wasn't sure if I should credit my inspirations for ideas, or provide links to stories with the kind of idea I'm thinking of. For example, if I give an answer where I suggest a desert planet where water is very scarce and is effectively used as currency, should I add "a bit like Dune"? Does that add to the questioner's understanding of the answer, or (given this is a site about building original worlds) does it inhibit the imagination, and make the answer worse?
(Related to, but not the same as Are answers solely referencing novels/movies/etc. okay?)
