The page is fine.

Please don't edit if I personally change your edit or undo an edit...that just means :
I LIKE IT HOW IT IS —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Voreo (talkcontribs) .

That's fine, but this isn't your website or homepage. It's a page on a community website about you. As such, it is subject to sitewise standards for formatting, appropriate tone, etc. Imagine what Wikipedia would look like if every person or organization covered in it was able to exercise editorial control over the page about them.
You are welcome (and encouraged) to present your reasons for any particular change in the edit summary box - or here if space is insufficient - but other editors may not always agree with you. At that point, we need to get to some kind of compromise version which all editors concerned can live with. --GreenReaper(talk) 01:18, 25 March 2013 (EDT)

Thats all fine and dandy, but until im popular, id suggest leaving this page alone, please.. let me be happy with a page i originally made about MYSELF. The way some edits looked was very unappealing to me. I like having it as it stands at the time i undid a change, why cant anyone be happy with that rather than troll my inbox? -Voreo

Note: I'm putting your text back here to respond to it, though if you really want to remove it, you can do that for the parts which you you have said. You should not remove other people's comments on a talk page, because they are for open discussion of articles.
If you have problems with particular edits, you're welcome to bring them up individually, and we can discuss them. What isn't acceptable is "this is how I like it, leave it all alone". That's just not how this site, or any wiki works. It's about us getting to the best possible version, and your opinion about what is the "best" way to represent it is just one of many. Like it says below this box, "If you don't want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, then don't submit it here."
Part of what makes WikiFur useful to others is that it has a consistent tone and style. Cutesy stuff like "Outside his caves and scales" may sound good to you, but to other editors they may appear to be fluff which makes the page and the site as a whole look unprofessional. You can do what you want (or at least, have a lot more freedom) in your user space, because that page represents only you, not the entire body of editors. --GreenReaper(talk) 01:55, 25 March 2013 (EDT)

Ok but im at least wanting to edit out things that are found on another sites link or my userpage. Like my name...and id prefer names i put on links be left alone, and some sites left off the list... one user added everything im on... most sites are just used as a link to my furaffinity (aka dead sites)

If you wish to obscure or remove a real life detail for the sake of privacy, editors will generally accept that, but you should explain that this is what you are doing in the edit summary. It's a good idea to remove it from the place it came from, if possible - after all, the fact that it is here is proof that people can figure it out from other sites. As for the links, we normally mark them as "(inactive)" if they have no content. I can understand wanting to ensure that a RL name is not on a link, but it shouldn't harm to actually link to them unless you have something there which you want to hide - which, again, is a bad idea, since a) they're all linked from your FA account, and b) they're all publicly indexable except FA. Unfortunately some sites don't let you change names; if you have a RL name in the username, but want to keep RL separate from fandom, it might be best to just sign up for another account. (Incidentally, you can sign your name and date on discussion pages with ~~~~.) --GreenReaper(talk) 02:26, 25 March 2013 (EDT)
