The VrChat loading screen of death

So I’ve been having this issue with Vrchat since 6/13/24. I bought an avatar and began to go through the steps to upload it. it was very complicated so i stopped. then the dreaded bug began. Stuck on the vrchat loading screen for hours at this point. cant even join a world through the website. I have deleted local files, verified files, uninstalled, reinstalled, restarted my computer, got rid of steam entirely and then I also created an entirely new steam account to deal with this issue and yet it is still broken. please help
