Why not DConf is carried out twice a year!? :)
E.g. in May and in November. It would be really great. Please think
about it!

Hmm, there may be a little disconnect here. Organizing conferences costs money, which currently comes from Walter and my pocket. Whilst I understand how it's awfully exciting to enjoy quality content from the comfort of one's device, we need more attendees before more conferences to make the checkbooks balance. Besides, there is no substitute for being there, as I'm sure all of this year's DConf participants may attest.

I've been thinking that D needs more globally-available talks like this throughout the year. One way to do it would be to schedule monthly livestreams of a D developer in front of his webcam, like the Jai programming language guy was doing. I could help organize something like this, but the problem isn't getting it up and running but having people actually give talks. I can't even get people to answer my emails for email interviews about D (with the exception of Mihails, who's been very prompt).

No doubt everybody is very busy and D is a hobby that's easily pushed aside, but online talks could keep the conference momentum going throughout the year.
