The suggestion is good, however I'd just add the note that a similar thing was proposed for Catalyst but it didn't work.
The proposal was to stop Catalyst Advent Calendar and publish an article just once a month, but finally there were no articles, and at the end of the year the Advent Calendar was published again.
It could work for Dancer if the article publishing on every 2 weeks is better controlled/monitorized though.

  Hello there!

  My worthless 2c:

  Based on our experience with the Perl Weekly, people usually click on 1 maybe 2 articles. So I think it is quite unlikely

  many people will be able to follow the Advent calendars.

  I also think it is quite hard to read so many articles in such a short period of time. Especially as several other Advent calendars
  are competing to our attention.

  Google Analytics of http://advent.perldancer.org/ tells me that most of the month the site gets about 1500-1800 visits / month

  In December 2013 it got 3500 visits, in December 2014 it got 4,400 visits.

  The http://perldancer.org/ site gets about 7-8,000 visits / month.

  Instead of and Advent calendar in December, I'd suggest to spread out the 24 articles and have one published every 2 weeks during 2016.

  Though it does not need to wait till January. It could be started next week. Then we could include them in the Perl Weekly

  and other Dancer enthusiasts could also spread the links.

  I'd also suggest to publish the articles on the http://perldancer.org/ site and to move all the content from http://advent.perldancer.org/ 

  to the http://perldancer.org/ and to create a unified table of context for all the articles, but that's a slightly different story.
