Content Dispute[edit]

User 192.246.40.32 deleted most of the content of this article with no explanation. I reverted it. The only thing the user added was that the Playboy photo shoot pics never appeared in the mag. I have no idea if this is true—I don't subscribe and I don't have the time to research it. —Frecklefoot 15:59 9 Jul 2003 (UTC)

NOTE: new at this, be patient, beginning to get a hang of it... Regarding changes and lack of comment: There were factual errors and it was better deleted. Some data were irrelevant but went ahead and simply corrected for current accuracy. ---User 192.246.40.32
Below is the paragraph you deleted. The information was taken from Case's website (when it was still online). What information in it is inaccurate?
While attending high school, Case sued the Unified School District no. 233 for banning the book Annie on My Mind by Nancy Garden from the school libraries. She won the case and was awarded the J. Phillip Immroth Intellectual Freedom Award from the American Libraries Association.
Thanks for getting back and commenting and updating the info in the article. :-) —Frecklefoot 13:52 15 Jul 2003 (UTC)
I had been informed that Case did not sue but was rather part of a group action. I found that this item was both irrelevant and also misleading. Since I could not find details of that suit thought it better to be left deleted. ---User 192.246.40.32
I can see how it could be misleading if it weren't true, but I don't really see how it would be irrelevant. The article is about Stevie Case, and that seems like a pretty significant acheivement to me. I don't mind leaving it out until the facts can be verified, though. I thought coming from her own website, though, it was pretty reliable. I also found this resource: http://www.libr.org/Juice/issues/vol1/LJ_45.html. If you see item 4 (or just search for Stevana on the page), you'll see information on the case. It lists Stevena as the chief plaintiff, so I think the wording of the paragraph is accurate. It also shows that she did earn the award. I think the paragraph should go back in, but I'll wait a while to get input from others.
One more thing: I see you added a sentence that Case had plastic surgery and that she was only approached by Playboy after the procedure (implying she was too ugly before the surgery?). This might be true, but is there any documentation on this? What did she have done? —Frecklefoot 13:57 16 Jul 2003 (UTC)
The information about Stevie getting an award in High School is irrelevant because that is not what gained her fame. If it had anything to do with her notoriety, then it would be relevant. I'm sure if we were to list the childhood awards and honors bestowed upon some of the well known and honored figures in the gaming industry, it would seem as irrelevant as the award previously listed for Case.
In regards to Case's plastic surgery, I encountered a website quite some time ago (which is no longer available unfortunately) where it showed before and after photos of a slightly obese girl with brown mousy hair, slightly crooked nose, and small chest next to the after surgery Case. It was quite stunning. It has been rumored (but never confirmed) that Case had liposuction, facial enhancements, along with the obvious chest enlargements. If you are part of the gaming industry it is a known fact that Stevie did not gain notoriety for stunning good looks till after the Playboy fiasco.
Okay, I'm cool with leaving out the HS award. As far as the plastic surgery goes, since we don't have any concrete evidence for it, I changed it to "rumored." If we can get some evidence (even such as a credible web site link), we can change the wording to reflect that the surgery did in fact take place. I do have to admit, though, that she does look very different from how she did as a teen. —Frecklefoot 14:52 21 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Official Website[edit]

Anyone know if her web site is ever going to come back online? It's been down for several months. If it doesn't look it'll be back up anytime soon, I think we should just nix it. —Frecklefoot 15:29, 30 Jan 2004 (UTC)

Since the current status as of 6/23/04 is "REDEMPTIONPERIOD" I bet it won't be back online. But it will remain as REDEMPTIONPERIOD until 7/9/04 (30 days) after which it will go to PENDING DELETION. So ... I'd nix it, frankly. Too bad, too, since I've talked with Stevie and she was always a cool person. Hope she does something again soon.206.156.242.39 21:44, 23 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Since you seem to know her personally, what has she been up to lately? I haven't heard anything about her since her split with Romero. Has she left the industry completely? Frecklefoot | Talk 14:56, Jun 24, 2004 (UTC)


I don't know her personally, but we have chatted a few times via email and such. She always was a great person and very nice. Answered questions and whatnot. I have sorta lost touvh with her, but plan on trying to see what she's up to soon for a website relaunch. Other than that, I kinda hope she does get back to business. Too bad she left Monkeystone, it would have made staying in touch easier. But since Romero is there...along with the wife, and the breakup... Well, you can see why she split. (At least, that's how I perceive it.)206.156.242.39 20:24, 25 Jun 2004 (UTC)

I can see why she left Monkeystone, but I have no reason why she and Romero broke up. Since she left Monkeystone, it seems like she's dropped off the face of the Earth. :-S Frecklefoot | Talk 20:14, Apr 27, 2005 (UTC)

hey, here's some new stuff for you guys: the dude stevie is involved with is named Stuart Platt. In 2003 he was working for THQ Wireless, which did a deal with Monkeystone Games to port Red Faction to the N-Gage. That would explain how she met him. He has since moved on to Capcom.

 article about stuart, with picture: http://wgamer.com/articles/intellivision032202
 article about Red Faction port to n-gage: http://wgamer.com/articles/ngage_romero

the stuart-and-stevie site currently has only one blog-like entry from both of them, dating back to early 2004. stuart says that 2003 was a "tough year" for them. other sites have alluded to the romero-stevana breakup as a messy one. interesting, no? unfortunately i was not able to google up any further details.

It was also fairly known in the Quake community that KillCreek was romantically involved with Tom "ParadoX" Mustaine of Ritual Entertainment prior to her relationship with Romero. Pimlottc 18:32, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Mammoplasty[edit]

I reverted the addition of the comment that her plastic surgery was mammoplasty. The whole plastic surgery thing was questionable from the beginning, so adding more details seemed spurious at best. Besides, I think was the user meant was augmentation mammoplasty. Frecklefoot | Talk 20:14, Apr 27, 2005 (UTC)

I see 4.11.122.115 has put the comment back in. As stated above, don't keep replacing your edit until you provide evidence! There just isn't any evidence that she had cosmetic surgery at all. Frecklefoot | Talk 15:41, May 2, 2005 (UTC)
Hey Frecklefoot, have you seen the Playboy pics? She has clearly had mammoplasty. I suppose you might argue that's original research, but so is pointing out that the sky is blue. Bob92 23:10, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
I'm not sure what you mean. Does she have scars from the surgery? Can it be pointed out that the only way to get such scars is from mammoplasty? Or are her, um, "subjects" unnaturally pert? I don't know... I don't think emperical observation is good enough for a case such as this. But, I am not an expert. — Frecklefoot | Talk 19:09, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
