Profile question removal?

With ning we can create our own profile questions, however, is there a way to remove or change the text of the mandatory question. In this case upon sign up, it asks for "Full Name" My site is a bunch of writers a roleplayer that collaborate using their character's. We have a custom profile question with a long answer that asks them to tell a bit about themselves. Most of my members if not all, go by their character's names rather than their real name. I'd like to change this text to 'Character name' or remove it all together and add my own profile question. Is this possible? - This was the default question upon starting up the site, and one I can't find a way to remove. Thanks ahead of time
