    So my friend just asked me on skype if it's possible to edit make/edit a map at the same time on 2 computers. I think he meant like live file sharing. If that isn't possible what's the best way to send a map file to a friend/colleague?

    No two people can't work on the same map at the same time in a live collab. The best you can do is use a service like Dropbox to share files with each other, and organize among yourselves who will work on the map and when.

    I am not sure I understand.
    p.s: I am not from an English speaking country so please don't judge me if I don't understand some words.

    the only wall I've really had with collabing is bad communication.
    If he is friend, I would recommend using voice chat. And if not, be sure to use very well phrased messages to make sure nothing is lost in translation.
