Tonight I attempted to register a new account on and encountered a bug. 

* I visited and filled it out with the username "ryanpetrello"

* I received a confirmation email and clicked on the link provided (on the domain).  I can provide the exact link from my email if necessary.

* Upon clicking the link, I was taken to and was shown an error that said, "Invalid URL scheme in homepage URL".  From here, I was unable to confirm my registration and login.

* I attempted a second registration (with a different username, ryan.petrello).  This time I did *not* provide a homepage URL, and was able to confirm my registration and login.

I suspect that on my original user registration (ryanpetrello), the homepage URL I specified must have omitted an http:// or https://

Same issue for me as well. Worked when prefixing homepage URL with http://.

The fields (email address, homepage, roles) are validated (by detectors/ only once the user is being created, and that happens while clicking on the confirmation link.  I can't think of any simple way to validate them beforehand on the server side, however if you get an error, no user should have been created and you should be able to reregister with the same username and with correct information.
