I was looking for a street and it wasn't labeled on the map so I updated it with a name and saved it. When I search for that street name it still doesn't show up, I can see the name on the map but it won't show up on a search. Did I do something wrong?

The name finder service Nominatim is not currently updating.

It ran out of 32-bit integers rather sooner than anticipated, and is being upgraded to use 64-bit integers.

The search function (Nominatim) can take a while to update. Here's the wiki page on it:

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim/FAQ#How_often_is_the_index_updated

You see there is also a latency graph so see how quickly the database is being updated at the moment.

All the OSM functions (the render, nominatim, etc.) are all on a slight delay. If it's in the database (ie you see it in your editor when you reload the area), then there's nothing to worry about, and your data is in the system.
