One suggestion would be to make the titles colour same as the "latest" part as I feel it blends into background a bit too much. For example make the "News and Updates" same colour (or similar) to "Latest: New Dark Alternate for..."
Very true but generally users adapt to such a thing and know what colours to avoid and if it's really an issue a quick highlight of the text will change background of it making it readable. So as long as you keep the Staff made posts within line it should be fine ;)
A second theme has been added with a light background - it keeps the majority of the colour scheme otherwise with a few tweaks to sections that were unreadable, and some minor layout tweaks. This is the current default but you can switch back to the previous dark theme by clicking on BN-New at the very bottom of the page and selecting BN-Old
