Settings is not an article

I'm trying to edit and save my profile -- getting error that:

1 error prohibited this article from being saved:
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

I understand that settings are build on top of Articles/post engine, but it's little bit weird.
Also, I'm getting this message because Employer url is not a valid URL.
I've entered . Indeed this is not valid URL. I suppose that validator didn't allow that data because there is no protocol name. But, is it so important here? Are there many ftp based employer urls? or any of Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) Schemes.
I can bet my boots that there are not.
So may be it would be more convenient for users to fill in their employer urls without scheme, assuming http(s) by default?

P.S.: About the slashes

It isn't even. I'd say this is a long-lived copying-and-pasting bug. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Quick fix will be live shortly
