Sitting is a feature on MinecraftOnline, added on 9 September 2011. It is possible to sit anywhere, but it is especially easy to sit on "chairs" and "sofas".
Chairs and sofas
It is common to see minecraft "chairs" created by placing a stair block, with signs on either side for the armrests. Similarly sofas or benches are made the same way, only wider. It is possible to sit on these simply by right-clicking on them with an empty hand. You can get up by right-clicking them again, or by using the commands below.
It is also possible to sit anywhere, using the /sit command. You can get up again by using the same command, or /stand.
When sitting on the ground, something resembling a fishing bobber is visible supporting the player. It has been hypothesised that each player carries a small portable inflatable stool to sit on, just for these occasions, and that this in fact doubles as a fishing float at other times.
