Problem with link to website

I just wanted to let you notice that some links to websites from Evernote contest submissions are not formatted well and obviously they don't work fine (one is for my app: flynote)

    Hi Luca,

    Thanks for the feedback, it's appreciated.
    Could you send me the URL for the page that is displaying the ill formatted links? Also indicate what the links should properly be?

    Want to make sure we address this. Thanks again!

    Both the links to websites from the submission gallery and from the detail page of the submission itself are relative starting from the domain devcup.evernote.com. For instance if you look at Flynote the url is something like www.devcup.evernote.com/Flynote/www.koorde.com/Flynote instead of of only www.koorde.com/Flynote.

    However, not only Flynote has this problem, so be careful and check for every submitted project.

    Thanks Luca,
    This is happening when people submit their URLs without the http:// -- just like if you were to do the same in a html document.

    Moving forward we will be doing smart checking for http and https -- if you have a submission that you have not added the http:// to the beginning, please edit your submission by 11pm tonight -- thanks.

    I'll be checking the other submissions as well, I appreciate the heads up!

    The fine print of the website field says the following:

    Website/App Download URL
    Provide a link to your website or the direct application package download. Be sure to start the URL with http://
