Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to the "Contact Us" page at https://stackoverflow.com/contact
  2. Select "I need to merge user profiles"
  3. The autofilled profile URL may be https://, in which case it will be throw a validation error on submission, like:

Error: "your profile link should be of the form http://stackoverflow.com/users/<id>/<display-name>"

Obviously this also occurs if you manually paste a https link, which is overwhelmingly likely if you're security conscious or using the HTTPS Everywhere plugin.

I would hope it's just an overly aggressive validation pattern, since there's no functional difference I can tell between the 2 profile pages.

Fixed in build rev 2014.3.31.2103 on meta and 2014.3.31.1502 on sites.
