How much do you have to contribute to the forums to get more space added to your account? 

Thanks

Thanks for the link, I've seen lots of links to that thread, but when I click on them I end up at an "Access Denied" screen and it says:

"you do not have sufficient privileges for this resource or its parent to perform this action.

Click your browser's Back button to continue."

Any advice?

Have you by any chance tried switching to another browser, using incognito, and ensuring that you’re not running any browser extensions?
 
You could also try clearing your browser’s cache, maybe that will do the trick. 
 
Let me know of any updates, @willace2!

@Lusil None of that will work. The thread was moved to an archive area of the forums. Has been like that for a while now. Open the thread, look at the breadcrumb navigation at the top and you'll see its location.

Oh, sorry about that! Allow me to explain:
 
While there is no set amount of contribution, when helping out fellow members of the Community, your answers may receive likes from other users or even be accepted as solutions by people who posted the question or Dropbox moderators. 
 
When your answers get a lot of likes or offer a lot of solutions, you may be rewarded with a 'Mighty Answer' badge and when you earn this badge, you'll get 1GB of additional space in your Dropbox account. 
 
Hope this helped!
