You're essentially asking us to sympathize with the writers and staff and view the show through the lens of what would be typical of such people in their particular situation.
The simple fact is that such things are not the problem of the audience.
Yes, it makes sense that a person might have more to say about their own character and have a larger emotional reward from creating content featuring their own character. It's basic ego stroking territorial-ism. What you are presenting as though it wasn't a problem is one of the main things people present as an example of what exactly is wrong with glimmer. Maybe confalone "gets" discord and maybe Joanna Lewis is "inspired" by trixie. That's fine. Fine fine fine. There is literally no valid complaint about "writing well", whichever examples you might use for a character being "written well". The complaint is not that jim should love twilight more than starlight, the complaint is that no amount of paying attention to a randomly chosen side character will fix what you do to any other character.
Further, letting your own "adoption" of a fictional character affect the overall quality of your work is simply not professional. It's highly personal and inappropriate attitude. Again, it makes sense. That doesn't make it right.
Most importantly, even if I just say you are 100% correct, that would mean that enjoyment of the show is dependent on the ability of the viewer to preform an act of high empathy which is in turn dependent on the viewer noticing who wrote which episode and realizing the significance of this. That's just kinda unreasonable to expect from anybody when they are first viewing the episodes.
