AMERICAN english. definately NOT. however knowing that not all cultures are the same it might be acceptable to say some thing like that in say........IRELAND? (XD refering to first post)

Edit: oooooooh now i see what it says. if they were forcibly sat down by another party then yes it would then make sense. but in no other situation.

They were seated, or they were sitting there should be more right.

doesn't it just mean somebody else actively placed them in their seats?

"we were seated there"
or
"we sat there"
both make better sense, but colloquially, your way is fine, i guess.

I don't really know what TS is aiming for, but if so, the first one should be right.

Yes, it does make sense.

Maybe also "They were seated there"

'they were sitting' is right for past tense
but the post was present tense - are not were therfore sat not sitting

-i think 'are sat' is correct, but its been along time sice i was at school!

EDIT:
i've totally confused myself now.
the origonal post was 'were sitting'? - which is correct.

Is this from the nightmare inducement thread? I didn't get it either...

I would say that it makes sense if another party like a waiter or waitress directed the 1st party to the seats, however like several people said, it could be phrased better.

However, many people have already said that, your question is already answered, and really I'm just wasting space on this thread for the sheer sake of posting something because I'm bored, tired, and procrastinating putting clothes on. NAKED FTW!!!!!!!!!!

But wouldn't all that be worth it to ride a zebra around campus? Perhaps dressed in chainmail? Maybe with a plastic sword and a wench who may or may not just be a prostitute?
