#4093: Check for `user_nicename` when meetup organisers are added

 When we add the usernames of meetup group organisers in the meetup tracker
 (https://central.wordcamp.org/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=wp_meetup), 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.
