Be sure you are using a current viewer. Viewer software has changed a lot since 2010. Best to do a clean install:

If you were able to log in, then your account is still working, you just are having problems rezing. This is called a Bake Fail. Start here:

I had no doubt it would have changed. My question is did it actually get better. Like truly better. Matter of fact, did rezzing in SL on initial login and rendering an avie get any smoother? I've actually been gone since 2008 or so and have only been in-world twice since then. When I did try to get in, it would take me upwards of 20 mnutes to take off enough stuff and jockey through outfits and attachments in order to get fully rezzed.

And then there were wholesale differences in capability and feature support viewer to viewer - I remember tattoo layers being one of those issues, leading me to stick with version 1.x of the Singularity viewer for what was likely far too long. I know everything went to mesh, but with the money I spent on custom skins and shapes, and the fortune I spent on prim clothing and hair between 2007 and late 2008, I just couldn't bring myself to trash most of my inventory and start over because by the end, not much really fit well.

I did buy a new shape and skin, and I like it, but I experienced a lot of the same issues last time, especally with half the avie being featureless depending on the viewer used. What viewer works best now and how smooth is the current SL experience?
