Does anyone know if it's possible to have two optional text fields in AO3 challenge sign-up forms?

Also, is it possible to change the labels on more form fields than "Prompt URL" and "Description"?

I'm trying to beta a sign-up for an exchange and I'm running into a brick wall as to how to best deal with warnings/triggers. Any other advice on how people have handled using the warning tags to match/not-match recipients and authors would be greatly appreciated!

edit - re: warning tags

As far as making sure people *don't* receive content that they don't want, would it make more sense if I *got rid of the warning tags completely* and simply had people leave their 'dealbreakers' in the text field?

I just set up a challenge, and that's what I did, yes. I experimented with an elaborate system involving a tag set, but "If you have triggers or squicks, you can list them in the prompt field" ended up being the easiest way.

You should be able to use the warnings to match by asking everyone to tick all the warnings they're okay with. The rest isn't currently possible, but I'd suggest sending it in to support, as others might find it useful if it was added.
