Default What does this mean?

I am puzzled by the occasional reference to "20 characters".

For someone that is not in on this, can someone please explain what it means?

It's a game we play here at DWF. Whenever you see the text "20 characters", you must QUICKLY send a private message to DogBreath, and in this message you must list your twenty favorite American sit-com characters, or you shall be banned for life. DB just loves this game...

When posting if you don't post at least 20 characters it doesn't allow you to post, so when you see 20202020 its just a filler to make 20 characters

Thanks for the info, guys, including the windups(!), I thought it might refer to the characters in an obscure phrase or something, like 'keepit simple stupid'
(including spaces, 20 characters LOL).

Roy.
