For crying out loud. I get that the wiki aims to be impartial but with a YMMV page you have to take other people's opinions with a grain of salt. These opinions were not my own in any way, they were taken from the Yogscast wiki and subreddit.

Your bashing edits are devolving into a thinly veiled hate campaign. TV Tropes is not the place to post your hateful opinions or those of other people, particularly not in the YMMV section (which would constitute an abuse of the intended purpose of the page). You are a lone ranger fighting a war against the site rules, again quoted for you here: "We are also not a wiki for bashing things. Once again, we're about celebrating fiction, not showing off how snide and sarcastic we can be."

Pay particular attention to "not showing off how snide and sarcastic we can be". Your edits are precisely this. You are not celebrating fiction, you are attempting to publicly discredit and undermine it. If you continue in this misguided effort the matter will be referred to staff.

They're not my opinions! How many times do I have to say this? I like Gamechap, have been subscribed for two years now and still tune in to their content. However, I acknowledge that other people are not so fond of them, as I do with other creators and works. Some of the edits you deleted were actually defending them, such as the ones calling out their more extreme critics.

If you look at the YMMV page for other Let's Play creators, you will see stuff like this is posted all the freaking time, and indeed for other works in general. If you have a problem with this, then surely there is a problem with the rules, tropes and their applicability? I get that you're trying to follow policy, and that's admirable, but at the same time it's mind-blowingly frustrating. I will refrain from trying to put the same edits in for now, but in the meantime I invite you to look at YMMV pages for creators such as PewDiePie, Achievement Hunter, Let's Play/Yogscast and so on, and ask what makes Gamechap exempt from this.

I am trying my hardest to keep the wording as balanced as possible. It's possible the wording has been a little blunt, but other people have their own opinions on TV Tropes, Youtube and the web in general. Please help me out in this.
