What to do if you want to use my work or build on it!

So, you want to do a theory of your own and include some of my work or you want to build on one of mine. What do you do? Here is what I would prefer you to do. Not forcing you, not going to threaten to take whatever down or comment "Hey, you stole some of my content!" just what I would prefer you did.
1. Give me a shout out. By shout out I mean the link to the theory, or if that doesn't work just point people towards my blog.
2. State which theory you want to build on or getting some info from. Optional but it would be nice for both me and your viewers.
3. Don't belittle my theory. Basically, if you are doing something like debunking it, do it in a nice way. Not like "This is terrible and here is why", but "I don't agree and here is why." No need to be rude, just say whats wrong, and what you like about it if you want.
4. Its okay to use my work, just don't copy and paste and say it was all you. Thats probably the only time I will call you out. Like I said, all you need to do is give me a simple shout out saying that you got some of the theory from me.
5. You don't have to ask to use my theory, its for everyone. And if you do ask, or say you used some, and include a link, I will give you a shout out and tell people to check it out.

In short, just give me a shout out by pointing people towards my blog and the theory and be nice if debunking. And do send me a link if you use some of my work, most likely I'll tell people to take a look! I personally believe writing should be for everyone, and unlike art you shouldn't have to ask to use some of someone else's writing, just credit them. I'm not asking for royalties, not asking for a section dedicated to me, just a line that says something like "Check out The Dragonspyre Pirate and his theory on ____!" A good example is a past post A look at a fellow pirates theory. Do something like that and you are fine. Cya in the spiral!
