Advice on Second Life Commissions

Anyone on here do any Second Life related commissions and have policies in their TOS/Commission info that work for them? I ask because last year I took on a commission that hasn't gone well at all and I'm having to compensate for my failure with the client currently. I didn't realize I've bitten off more then I could chew until it was too late in the commission, taking it on just ended up being a terrible mistake that I'm now desperately trying to fix.

It seems like it is a whole new can of worms regular digital artwork because it adds 3d modeling and programming, and builds can become more complex then you realize when the client wants their construction to have all the bells and whistles, and I'm not always sure they can provide them. It would compare to fursuiting, if someone asked for a suit with a list of animatronic features.
