Do people think it would be better and still fair if I added nicknames as alternate answers? Also should I perhaps allow some shortened names and allow some first name only to be alternate answers?

I doubt you'd say that to Mats Valk or Feliks Zemdegs if you met them.
Given that Mats and Feliks are famous, in particular hold the current 3x3 WRs, and together account "only" for 16/299, it's quite possible that he got both of them and just called other people's WR information useless and thus wouldn't have a problem saying this to Mats or Feliks.

Got 109, probably shouldn't have given up as soon as I did

I had no idea how to spell Przemysław, didn't know the full name of Gabriel Pereira Campanha or Gabriel Alejandro Orozco Casillas, and somehow forgot Tomoaki Okayama's first name.

I was only able to spell Grzegorz Jałocha and Abhishek Sathyanarayanan right because of these videos

What would be cool is the same survey but you guess the time instead of the name. You would select a name and guess, rather than write a number and have it assigned to any name with that result.
