As described before, subscribed folder list is saved in `~/.folders' file. But you don't have to edit `~/.folders' directly. You can append, delete, edit folders from folder mode.
m a appends new folder to the folder mode. m g appends new folder group. To append new folder to this group, firstly open it, then execute append command in the next line.
You can cut folder by C-k, paste by C-y. Thus, you can change folder position as if you were editing a normal file.
You can delete nickname or filter by putting ""(NULL) from the minibuffer while appending.
To append new folder to the empty folder group (after you create folder group by typing m g), firstly open it, then execute append command in the next line. If it is closed, folder is appended on the same level with the above folder group. It is difficult to explain by words so try it. In other words, appended position depends on the above folder group's open/close status.
wl-mime-charset is used for saving
m f adds filter to the folder at the current cursor point. To create new filter folder and leave the current folder unchanged, copy it M-c, make filter m f and paste it C-y. Multiple filter can be specified while appending filter. If you put ""(NULL), filter is deleted.
Sorting of the folders is executed by the function specified by

If the prefix argument has negative value, folder becomes visible and if

You can insert and delete folders in the access group like usual folder group. But insert and delete commands can be only available for the children folders of the access group and they only sets the subscribe status. In other words, insertion of the folder means subscribing, deletion means unsubscribing. (2)
To update the access group when children folders are inserted or deleted by other way (other than Wanderlust), open the access group by typing C-u RET. See section Selecting Folder.

newly created folders are inserted on the top of the access group.
