Check for `user_nicename` when meetup organisers are added

Reported by: hlashbrooke's profile hlashbrooke Owned by:

When we add the usernames of meetup group organisers in the meetup tracker (, the system checks if it is a valid username by checking against the user_login field. This is fine in most cases, but in some instances the username supplied is actually the user_nicename as it is copied from the profile URL.

When that happens, the only solution is to ask in the #meta channel on Slack if someone can help with providing the username from the given nicename. That is obviously not ideal.

The simplest solution here would be to add a secondary check to match the provided username against the user_nicename field if the initial check against the user_login field fails. This check is only run at the time that the meetup listing is saved, so any processing overhead created by an additional check wouldn't be a problem.
