> this would change to the preferred language of each user

An important thing to note here is that we don't have "one preferred language" for each user. The preferred languages is a list of languages, so that needs to be taken into consideration.

Furthermore, I don't think we should hide large parts of the community from each other by default. I often see diary entries in languages that I can't read, but sometimes the pictures are enough (or mentions of something that I recognise, like 'JOSM') to make me want to translate them to find out what's going on. 

> Only accessible by authentified users and with preferred languages filled.

The preferred language setting should only be seen as an override to browser-specified defaults. So even for non-logged-in users we can detect the preferred languages. It's only that they don't have the opportunity to set a preference, not that we should ignore their preferred languages entirely.
