Hot Art & Hot Recs is one of the most popular categories of the newsletter. For fanart or fanfic to qualify as a Hot Rec, the Daily Snitch requires two public recs on Livejournal, InsaneJournal or Dreamwidth, or three public recs for the currently most popular pairings (Harry/Draco, Severus/Harry, Remus/Sirius).

Since November 2014, the Daily Snitch can be searched via tags.
