Im looking to have 1 thread wich can be live editted by multiple users adding information- not removing it.
Is there a way to achieve this in xenforo?

One thread. I want multiple users being able to edit the same thread and that both information/edits are saved not overwritten. Specific node is fine as well but thread is preferred.
Well, specific thread editing would require an addon, the only way to do it for a node would be to create a new group giving users the ability to edit others posts for that node, though obviously it comes with the drawbacks of giving them effectively moderator editing ability.

But when 2 persons edit a thread at the same time, wont it get overwritten by who evers clicks the "edit" button last?

Oh, in the case of multiple users editing a post simultaneously, that's a more complicated matter, can you give an example use case? Either way, having a post under revision by multiple people is going to cause issues.

Yes. I want to have a paying method in my guild. Once someone paif their contribution we can edit the topic and put a X behind his name so we know he paid.
