* The edit feature is broken. Clicking 'Submit' takes you to the preview screen.
* Song search, etc. doesn't work. It seems to be implemented; e.g. you can find a user's songs from his profile, but you can't search directly.
* The server is increasingly unstable. Seems like I can't access it half the time anymore.
* Some other stuff I can't remember. I'll add to this list.

Both submit and edit work for me.

Edit isn't broken. The preview page shows up if you click too fast upon submission. If editing took you less than 30 seconds, wait a short while and submit. This "feature" has reduced the amount of bot posts significantly. Doesn't stop them all, obviously, but does stop most of them.

The Server has been rather sporadic due to an internal wiring issue at my house. Basically, the modem is having trouble syncing with the server and Verizon has determined it's an interior line issue. Only, they won't service me because I am not a direct Verizon DSL customer and buy through a reseller to receive a ToS that allows me to host a server. Just getting them to come out and determine if there was a good signal at the MPOE (Minimum point of entry) took three weeks. I had an electrician out yesterday checking wires. We're running a new line today and hopefully that will solve our sync issues.

Did you code / invent that yourself? It sounds brilliant.

No. Found it in the phpBB mods. Also, I ran a makeshift phoneline directly from the MPOE to the modem. The connection speed seems much better, hopefully it stays that way.

The days of the ninja edit are dead and gone! Sad...

Seriously, though, I don't usually make prolonged edits. If it cuts down on bots like you say, then it's more than worth it.

What about the other search features?

Good to hear, thank you.

Another bug to report: today I got a message saying I had a new private message, and when I went to check, I didn't. My last private message was several months ago.

No...you did. But it was from a spam bot. Unlike the other spam bots, this one targetted members via PM. I deleted the messages, but I either deleted yours after you had signed in or I did not properly clear the data to remove the "You have a new Private message" pop-up. I was actually surprised to see 4 identical spam bot PMs today.
