Noise Pollution


Question

I live at TuTone Tower, Dodder (215, 96, 62) - Moderate  A premium member home.  A home near by has an alarm blaring constantly. It is annoying. It is obnoxious. So far I can not listen to my music or have guests over because it is so annoying. The insulting audio comes from Protected Land - Park , Dodder (204, 157, 61) - Moderate  I have messaged the owner. He is not a newbie, his account is 13 years old.  I think it is done just to annoy his neighbors.  How do we reach help on this matter?  Nothing in Knowledge base covers it, that I can find.  Who, in Linden labs, can police this sort of annoyance?

I think it's more likely to be a security system that has been set off by some intruder.  If you want to be kind, send the owner an IM to ask him to turn it off.  Otherwise, submit an AR that identifies the name of the alarm, its owner, and location so that LL can take care of it.  Meanwhile, locate the thing with sound beacons enabled and then block it, so that you won't hear it.

I recommend that you AR it -- the object is the Emergency Light that is outside, hanging from the patio roof.   I'd chose 'Disturbing the peace / Object littering"  -- there isn't a category that fits perfectly.  Then in the Details, be sure to specify that you can hear the object from two parcels away.  Since you are a Premium member, you can also use Live Chat and that will often get faster results.

It does, but that also eliminates all outside sounds, including any from Mole/Linden provided objects (birds, other critters, etc..) that you might want to hear.

Hello @Tommytu. I've just had a visit to your area and found the source of the alarm, it's a rotating yellow alarm beacon positioned on the ceiling of its owners home porchway, at house number 118.

The alarm's description is: GCD - Emergency Light (CEILING)(v2.4) and is owned by someone (I won't reveal his name) who was last online on 18th April 2021, so he would seem to still be recently active. 

Walk close enough to the alarm where you can right-click the ceiling alarm, then you can block it, which will permanantly silence it, unless you choose to unblock it. Blocking it worked for me. :)

Yeah - already said that:

He already knew which home.

 

 

@Tommytu- Note that while you can block/mute the object, that will not help your guests.  They will each have to also block/mute the item.  Since this is a Linden Home area - though the older ones - LL is pretty responsive to issues there.

Parcels do have a "restrict sounds to parcel" function in the land settings.

check out: About Land \ Sound \ Sound: Restrict gesture and object sounds to this parcel

No. It restricts the sound that YOU emit from your parcel.
To restrict the sound of your neighbour - your neighbour needs to set it.
It's a privacy setting and not a protection setting.

Tested too, yes works 2-way, so that easily solves this kind of neighbour problems.
I'm pretty sure last time I tested it - blocking was only 1-way - but that could be a while ago now.

Yes, Alwin suggested that option more than 15 hours before yours.

 

 

Doesn't anybody read the other posts anymore to see what has already been mentioned?  Especially in a thread as short as this one.

Mostly I agree with you.  However, in the new Linden Home areas, the Moles have rezzed some nice nature sounds that are actually pleasant to listen to (this from one that doesn't listen to sound much at all due to home environment).  Granted, OP is in an old Linden Home and I don't think LL did any sort of sounds there.
