I noticed that my "guru" status has suddenly reverted to "contributer"

It use to be that folks that posted over 1000 posts became gurus. Also the account settings are limited in scope. What happened to that and when did it change?

Still the same.

Yes, over 1000 posts gets the title "Bronco Guru". Over 1500 posts means you can customize that title, which you've done. You changed it to say "Planetary Offroader". It shows below your "Contributor" status.

Not sure what this means. Can you explain more?

On the other hand, thinking about it a little, it does seem that the box with "contributor" is more prominent than it needs to be. Everybody is a contributor pretty much. Seems like that space could be used to better purpose. Don't know what, but it seems secondary.

The contributor box indicates you've paid the $12 per year to post photos. Not everyone has done that, hence the indication you have.

Yes, of course. By that I meant, it is common, although not universal obviously, so it seemed like that spot could be used for something else. But my point is that that is maybe site-specific information. But it works.
