Thumbs up A prompt in the editor box?

Have installed RC2 have set up a forum as a movie review recommended forum.. created a new type new review etc and two custom fields for a url's where the movie can be purchased on dvd..

Everything works and looks good (IMHO)

I do have a question though. the url to the dvd must be entered as www.theurl.com i.e without the http. if the http is included it will link as
http://http://www.theurl.com - obviously that produces a broken link..

Now that is no trouble for me if I'm writing the review I simply exclude the http:// part and it works and links correctly - but I wondered if there was a way on the editor page that I could state above the custom boxes a message to omit the http part of the url i.e something like "when posting the url use this format www.thesitename.com i.e do not type in http://"

It doesn't really matter if I can't I can always put that instruction in the forum description or a How to box or something - I just thought it would be tidier and more helpful to the user to have it as a prompt when they're actually writing the review.

Cheers, and great product. Its working on my 3.54 test site (not live yet, want to see what happens when I upgrade to 3.6)
TIA

Post it in the tracker. The regexp needs to be better at slicing the URL correctly. Ive already looked into it, but an entry in the tracker is the easiest way I dont forget.
