Its not design or/vs functionality it should be both, they are synonymous which is why along with the redesign I believe they could had added some useful functionality too. Clearly there is a reason behind why rcgroups redesigned the website in the first place and my best guess is an attempt to differeniate the website from the many online forums using the same default php forum template. With as many users as rcgroups has its surprising they hadent done it any sooner.
