This module lets Prosody notify users when they’re mentioned in a MUC, even if they’re not currently present in it.

Users need to be explicitly mentioned via XEP-0372 references.

In anonymous and semi-anonymous rooms, the mentioned user needs to have their nickname registered in the MUC so that Prosody can get the real JID from the referenced nickname.

NOTE: this module is not compatible with mod_block_strangers because the latter will block the notification messages from the MUC (since they’re not “groupchat” messages).
