This folder is then used to store the feed. If any folder other than the account root is selected, the feed is stored directly in that folder. I think this can be confusing and should be replaced. What I propose instead is to add a checkbox and an edit field to the properties box when adding feeds, in addition to the current folder selector The checkbox should be used to choose whatever to create a new folder to store the feeds in and the edit field should be the name of the new folder, if creation is desired.
