I looked on 'the team' and he has definitely demoted himself down to a normal user
As the others explained, there is no way to copy permissions from one user to another. Nor is there any "promote" or "demote". Usually permissions are not assigned directly to individual users. Permissions are assigned to groups, then users are added to the group so they inherit the permissions. The easiest way to assign the standard admin permissions to a user is to add that user to the Administrators group.
