Name Game

So, each time I join a new group (my new job is the one I'm referring to this time...) about half the people learn how to pronounce my name correctly, and the other half do not. And the ther is usually a "pronunciation battle" for a few weeks until I get disenchanted.

My new job has a message board where anyone can post questions/comments/concerns. What do you think about just a general post:

This is how you pronounce my name:
