-- Some people seem to get this problem frequently and some seem to never get it.
-- I typical like to play with 3 of my friends and i get this the most, one of them has had it happen once or twice, and another one has never had this problem.
-- There have been people to report that they get this glitch logging to the same server, other get it logging into every server.
Can be reduced or reversed by:
-- If you log into a server and you do not have the stuff you had before.
-- Do not move, Immediately log out of the server and then log back into the server you just left or were last in.
***!THIS WORKS ABOUT 80% OF THE TIME, IT IS YOUR BEST BET TO GET YOUR STUFF BACK!*** (As of this writing)
-- Test out some servers to see which ones seem to be safe from this glitch and add them to your favorites
-- Add a server to your favorites before entering and delete once you have safely entered a new server (to aid with getting back your stuff should you lose it
-- Do not immediately log off a server after having just logged on.
-- Move around a bit after logging on before logging off. So if you log on and just want to rearrange you inventory (for example, logging into a night server to be safe from bandits and murders), make sure you move around a little before logging off.
-- Travel with friends.
-- It seemed to happen to me less often when I was with my friend who never seems to get this glitch. He would log into a server and we would follow. There has only been on time when this didn't work and that was on a badly lagging server and when the lag seemed to get better, there turned out to be a zombie standing in the middle of our group that must have killed us when we were lagging and could not see it.
Not all these steps are proven but they seem to have worked well for me
