I think they just brainstormed a lot and wrote this down and didn't care
for better looks (or find the time and priority). Anyway they put a lot
of content there for everyone, which is great, even though sometimes
hard to get.

No, I agree. Better looks are always better. They cheer you up, they
make looking at the content more comfortable.
And even if attracting more people isn't that important, marketing does
count I think.
