Hello Second Life Community.

      Last night was the first time that I had gotten back on second life in a few months. And I believe I had this issue before I left, but my avatar is not rendering like it should. When loading, My head goes to my hand, and my dress awkwardly floats inside of me. Also, other pieces of my body parts are off to the side in a cluster. Can someone please give me an explanation/solution??

Thank you :)))

It sounds like things aren't loading well. You RIGGED head is likely set to "right hand" (the default). Clothes floating for a LONG time is exactly what happens in a crowded venue to most all of us. Try logging into to an empty water sim like SMITH. Beyond that it may be a connection problem or you may have your viewer set higher than it can actually work well at  -- for graphics.

Without more information we are giving you the 'common' fixes. Use Help->About... when asking a tech question. Paste the info with your question/problem.

Depending on connection and region lag it can take a few minutes for an avatar to render. Not being on for a time means your cache has likely aged out and is having to reload. This also slows things down.

It is always good to have two brands of viewer installed. Firestorm users usually have the Linden viewer installed for troubleshooting. Keeping it installed allows for quick test of whether it is an us or them problem, my computer-viewer ot the Linden servers.

What you describe sounds like typical slow rendering avatars. HOWEVER, older versions of the viewer not using the latest protocols can fail to render the avatar correctly. There is what we call the 'hair-in-the-butt' bug. More broadly a problem of things on the avatar rendering in the wrong place. It is a symptom of the viewer and server getting out of sync, which has a wide range of causes. It is often fixed by a relog.

Chic has made a good suggestion for what to try.
