It would be nice if an question would be auto-marked as Answered when an admin leaves a comment.
As you have option next to comment to mark as answered, there is no need to automate it as sometimes you'll need to clarify some questions before it's get answered
Okay. I see the Options link at the bottom allows you to set the Status when you submit the comment. Can you remove the options link and just show the status drop-down by default?
I think it's not reasonable to make it now, as there can be more options.
We have plans in more system automation to build macros and use it to perform several actions at once - that's where you'll have not just changing status, but more actions to make while commenting
