Description

Thanks to this question at de.wp,
I have figured out (examples at de.wp, en.wp, fr.wp) that some users seem to be mistaking the dialog for editing the references group for Citoid, pasting their URLs in the "use this group" field.

What's the impact of this? How frequently does it happen? Lots of people frequently misunderstand software and do silly things, and there's no way we can prevent that. If this is a huge problem, then we can take a look at improving or redesigning things somehow, but from here it doesn't seem to be.
