      Description

      From Wheeljack's comment to ---MBS-8390---:

      I am no longer able to add Bandsintown links to the artist page as of today.
      Whenever I try to do that, I now get:
      "This URL is not allowed for the selected link type, or is incorrectly formatted."

      Here is the link I tried to add:
      http://www.bandsintown.com/Altocamet
      to this artist:
      https://www.musicbrainz.org/artist/f9efcd8f-eebe-4b26-8665-2c1051ffd584

      This is true of both the live server as well as beta.

      I see what happened, I was adding links with a leading "www", for example http://www.bandsintown.com/altocamet
      This is because that's the link that shows up when you search for that artist from google, for example:
      https://www.google.com/#q=bandsintown+altocamet

      When I removed the "www" to http://bandsintown.com/altocamet, it got added correctly, it even corrected the http:// to https://
      I think the solution for this would be to automatically strip the "www" since I am sure other users will make the same mistake that I did.

      Similarly, the "m" can be stripped from http://m.bandsintown.com/Altocamet
