Confluence Configuration Error

That's a broad title. A configuration error could be anything. It is unfortunately the best description I have for a problem that made no sense to me in its genesis, and will probably never happen again.

We're running Confluence version 3.3. One of our Marketing folks wanted to add a new Global Space to the Dashboard for a project he was working on but couldn't see a way to do it. There was no link to "Add New Space" or anything, so I told him I'd look into it. I wasn't all that familiar with Confluence beyond some basic administrative tasks, but I figured it was probably just hidden somewhere in the settings.
