Time restrictions on date field

I have used date module to create date field for project.

Some people are putting in 1:00 for time rather than 13:00, so the event shows up as taking place at 1 am. Is there a way to change the time format to 12 hour format, or restrict the available times to say from between 7:00 and 22:00.

Fatal error upgrading d6 to d7 - flag module

What I have right now:

Content is of type

Parameter: Content: [node], Content types: Alert Item, Event, News

AND

Text comparison

Parameter: Text: [site:url], Matching text: www.xxx.ca
