Why do I look like a noob in every Roblox game?

At the time of this article's publication, 1pm CT on Thursday May 4, 2023, the Roblox Status website is reporting an "Active Incident" that's effecting players around the globe. As the website states, this incident is resulting in "default Avatar appearance for many users;" in other words, many players are loading into experiences with the classic "noob" look, rather than their normal avatar. The Avatar Editor is currently experiencing issues as well, with many players blocked from even accessing it.
