I can't help but think everyone's got to have noticed this at some point. I don't think it's a problem in mobile/tablet view but on desktop you're forced to sacrifice readability for at least one usergroup with each colour of the theme:

Frankly, the only ones where you can see every single name are just horrid in comparison. My proposition is to just hotfix it by adding a background to each name so regardless of the theme colour you choose, every name is readable. I've created a few examples according to the forum colour palette:

The literal fix (ignoring the colour element, that was Nervous' colour):

I've come across this issue myself and was also wondering about it. Seems like most of the available forum themes are simply not compatible with the various username colours. The suggested tweak seems like a fine solution to this problem.

Supporting, the fix that you proposed seems fine to me.

This makes sense for some names. In order to help the confusion I think the idea of adding a white/gray background the names like suggested above would be a good start.

This sounds like a great suggestion. And provided with an easy way to fix it as well! Supported!

@Everett can this be done?

I doubt it'll be at the top of any queue, although it's an inconvenience to everyone and people mention it on discord often. I've been contacted twice about helping with frontend development but both times the conversation just stopped. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens...
