Lina is one of the early members and lead staff members of YTMND, as well as Max's legal counsel. After the inception of the website in early April of 2004, Lina is credited with making thethat got the site started, and is largely responsible for the momentum of the site since. As the mysterious white ghost of ytmnd, Lina has went on to create a furor with such notable sites as . Promoting spooky action at a distance, Lina's preeminence is still recalled in public comments from MasterSitsu:
"...there are thousands of new users without a basic understanding of YTMNDs roots, making sites and voting...if I'm a traditionalist about anything on this site, it would be about showing respect to the sites from forgotten legends like lina who made YTMND great." [sic]
As one of the oldest YTMND users, lina has resisted the fancy bells that have sprung up in the YTMND community such as the syncing and the having not of text that are the hallmarks of the faggy short film, instead dealing exclusively in classic, non-fad sites (with the exception of a few that could be considered part of the dew army). She also prefers still images, using .gifs in of her sites.
Over the years the shadowy presence of this user on the site, forums, and IRC chat has resulted in considerable deliberation over many faithful ytmnd users. Conclusions range from a love interest of the sole proprietor to silent partner and generous provider of the hosting. Considering the 1980s pop culture theme apparent in several of her ytmnds (, , ) and her obvious access to a photo booth at Wal-Mart it is believed that Lina is an aged homemaker and part time photographer residing in the mid-west. After all, in real life, a decent person wouldn't let another human photograph them posing with a pumpkin.
