I can add my own custom layers (Add Custom Source) and save them to my account, but there does not seem to be a way to tweak the settings.
Would be nice if under My Account > My Layers, there was an option to edit them. Currently, the only option is to delete and re-add if I want to change something.

    This is an infrequently-used feature (even if people use custom layers a lot they generally aren't saving them multiple times a day), so the UI is a little rough.

    You can't edit them directly, but on the map viewer, if you do Add Layer -> Add Custom Source, there should be a "load from" option at the bottom, just to the right of "save to account". Use that to load the layer, make your changes, and then save it back to the account (you might have to delete the original).

    There is a bug loading existing layers though - I should get that fixed by tonight.

    Ah nice. That workaround should be good for now.

    Good to know about a bug on your end. I was wondering if one of my data sources changed their URLs.
