So I noticed this on a game description I was adding, when I was wanting to add a Wikipedia URL as the source.

If I paste an https Wikipedia URL into the attribution value box and hit Format, it removes the https:// and the result is not a URL, it looks like this:

''Source: Wikipedia, "[en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGG VGG]", available under the [http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ CC-BY-SA License].''

Whereas it should look like this:
''Source: Wikipedia, "[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGG VGG]", available under the [http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ CC-BY-SA License].''

(the code looks a bit messy here because it's wiki code not forum code)


I get this behaviour in game descriptions and on series descriptions, so I guess it's acting like this everywhere there is an option to use the Wikipedia attribution format thing.
