Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

My street name was incorrect, and I edited it using Potlatch2. Now, the correct name shows up when zoomed in, but zooming out still shows the incorrect name. I'm totally new to this ... is it maybe something I've done, or a problem with Potlatch?

There's a long detailed answer to the question of "when do tile levels at different zoom levels get updated" here.

It is probably just your browser caching the map tile images. You may not have zoomed all the way in before you edited the name so when you zoomed in after editing your browser fetched the new image but lower zooms are being displayed from your cache.

Try forcing a refresh in your browser (usually shift-F5) or clearing your cache and then reloading the page.
