Does this mean I have to go back and change all of my previous ads so as to make sure they point to a working URL?
How do I know the software doesn't fix it by default?
If this is the case- MSN needs to put wording into this to let people know to leave the http:// out of that text box.
Indeed, I had to go back and change all of my previous ads by removing the http:// from the text box- as it is automatically inserted already.
Helps to proofread your ad unit on the right and ACTUALLY CLICK your ad title to make sure it points to your correct page.
So all the clicks I paid for in the last 24 hours did me no good whatsoever because of this system.
Hopefully the support system answers my email or thier support forum gives an answer.
I fully intend to get credited for any clicks that did not point to a valid URL.
This needs to be fixed.
All it takes is a small bit of wording on their part.

Once we know how to do it right, we're unlikely to make the same mistake again. I would always recommend testing your ad anyway - there are so many other ways a URL can get messed up - especially in cut and paste.
Oh- and if you are to delete any of your campaigns- be sure to keep records of whatever figures were showing, as there is no way to look back on them anywhere in this UI.
....that isn't to say those figures were the right ones anyway- because they probably were not.

Is this happening for anyone else? We'd like to either resolve this issue or, as you suggest, possibly make a change in the UI to make this more clear.
Also, I was using the Standard AdCenter, not Beta.
