Sublime/just asking for credit

Question
Much respect for your knowledge, but don't claim ". I created the 5 CD bootleg "Rewind Selector" which documents the influences of Sublime and was the topic of a Spin Magazine interview."  

You forgot to mention the original author of that cd, and the original mixer, was me, helta.  I was the one that started that. I'm really not looking for serious credit, but don't pretend you came up with the idea.

Answer
Glad you found me. I've been looking for you for 16 years. You're mentioned in the text supplement and even many answers as the creator and full credit is always given.

Email me at mdmaguirespam AT Comcast DOT net and I can talk further offline.

EDIT:
From the opening paragraph of every copy of Rewind Selector out there:
"Rewind Selector is more of a project than a bootleg. It began in the 90s by a guy who went by the moniker heLTa on the Sublime board at www.skunk.com."

Expertise

Guarantee: you will receive an answer within 2 days of posting the question -- whether it is a referral to a different expert or a straight answer to your question. I can answer most questions about the band, the significance of the lyrics, the show dates, the unreleased albums and tracks, misinformation, and, above all, I am an expert on their influences and related music. Additionally, if you're looking for that hard to find track or a cheap alternative to the $300 book Crazy Fool: Portrait of a Punk, I might be able to help.

Experience

I have been a huge fan for 16 years, I ran a server which distributed Sublime's live and unreleased music 24/7 for 4 years, I have answered questions about the band daily for a decade on their old website, and I know some of the largest collectors in the world. I created the 5 CD bootleg "Rewind Selector" which documents the influences of Sublime and was the topic of a Spin Magazine interview.

Education/Credentials
I did not study music in college, but I majored in English, so I can write a clear response. I worked as a research assistant in the past, so I have skills in research if I need to figure out an answer.

Past/Present Clients
Sublime fans aren't my clients, but I have distributed swag and rare tracks to all those who want them for years at little cost.
