it would be great if you could also have a tool tip for the blackout module.
It would be very useful to leave a hint on how a value is supposed to be provided e.g.
Host Name (Regular Expression, lowercase, without Domain suffix!)
Very good idea.
2) User display
Does this meet your need?
your mock-up pretty much reflects exactly what I am looking for! Since it is hard to provide a syntax checking for a regular expression, I at least need a tool tip to remind the users what kind of data they are supposed to add here.

This is really good news ... it will help us a lot! I am really looking forward to 3.3.
ProactivePack has become a quite common answer to many questions.
To go deeper, does following solution matchs your expectations
If a html file is available, then the question mark can be clicked to show the help content.
Files are located in data/<ModuleName>/Help/ and must be named as follow:
1. <slotname>.html for every language
2. <slotname>-2 digit lang code>.html for a specific language
If file <ProactivePack Installation path>/data/BlackoutMgt/Help/mc_host.html exists then when user click on question mark content will be displayed such as:
In order to get such a result, file content should be:
