Per a request in a private message, I have changed the Administrators group's custom username color from #AA0000 (Like This) to a brighter red #FF3300 (Like This), which should have better contrast with the post background.

What other color changes need to happen to make forums more usable?

This is a good change. In general, for color-blindedness or not, having important details differentiable by luminosity helps readability for everybody. I don't have any color-blindness, but the dark admin text was a little hard to read anyway.

If you want to bug my mind, place a light red square inside a bigger blue square :mrgreen: :mrgreen: and turn your head left-right slightly, but fast. 8-) :lol: :lol:
