Permanent Demotions are done when something really major occur with an account, and this hasn’t presented on the wiki as of today. Also, if a promoted editor is absent from the wiki for a large period of time(3 months for an administrator, 1 month for everyone else), they will be demoted one step, but they can ask to a bureaucrat for their position back whenever they decide to come back, this can only be done once though.
