Support Forums: Profiles require nickname on edit, which causes issues

Description

This only happens when editing the forum profile (ex. https://wordpress.org/support/profile/ipstenu )

Sometimes, when you edit an OLDER account (to leave a note, to change role to blocked because the email bounced), you end up with the changes NOT being fully saved because there's no nickname.

Yes, it needs a nickname, but that field is NOT marked as 'required' so it's not obvious until you have to re-do work.

Recommend: If there's no nickname, auto-copy the user-name to nickname and spare the moderators their time :)
