Ok so I talk to all of them several times a day, I do their favors whenever they ask, I have been doing this since the game came out on June 9th, but no one has requested any public works projects, or given me their picture.  Anyone know if I'm doing something wrong or do I just need to be patient?

You haven't had a single villager request a PWP?
Either something is seriously wrong with your game, or you've got the worst luck on the planet lol.

I just have a hard time believing it lol.
Do you play everyday?

It's just it's been 46 days since june 9th. If you haven't had a single request then there's gotta be something wrong with your game or maybe you're just not playing it enough?

Have you checked on PWP requests with Isabelle?  In the beginning I didn't think I was getting any either.  When I got my first request I went to tell Isabelle to set it up and viola... there were already about 5 others on her list.  So I think sometimes the villagers tell Isabelle without telling the Mayor first.

I just dreamed your town.
I'm guessing you just don't play the game often enough. That's all I can really think of.
You have lots of things burried in your town (fossils and gyrois I'm guessing)...do you check the game often?

Also your house hasn't been upgraded in your dream (maybe you just haven't updated your dream lately). It's just the house you get after paying off the tent.
I don't think this should have anything to do with it...but maybe they'll only start requesting PWP's after you've upgraded your home a bit?

lol I'm clueless on this. I have no idea.

I play everyday, the reason there is a lot of stuff buried, and yes it is gyroids and fossils, is because I've mostly been working on other PWPs and trading with other people.  That is also why I haven't upgraded my house yet, but I will soon.  Yes I checked with Isabelle and all I have is the default PWPs.

My guess is either you aren't playing enough (I play 70 hours a week and get maybe 2 or 3 requests if I'm lucky), or you aren't good enough friends with your villagers.  It takes a long time to build friendships with the villagers.  It took me 26 straight days of doing favours, writing letters and giving presents (almost 300 hours of playing) before I finally got a picture from one of my first villagers.  

You're more likely to get a PWP request if you have a high level of friendship with your villagers, but it's still completely random.  Even with maxed out friendship, they'll still come running up to ask if their outfit is cute. All it takes is one missed date for visiting their house or a fish or bug request that couldn't be caught that day, and it lowers your friendship.  It's hard to maintain a high level of relationships with the villagers... lots of work.

For friendship levels, I got this from a Japanese guide:

+1 talk to villager at least once every day
+1 send a letter every day
+1 for completing favours they request
-1 for missing talking to them for a day
-1 for failing to complete a favour
-1 for scaring them with the microphone

Friendship test:

If your villager is sitting on a bench/log/chair sculpture...

Sit next to the villager.
If you don't look at each other, you are at default level.
If you look at each other, you are friends.
If you both look at each other and sit with happy facial expressions, you have high friendship level.

Using the microphone...

Call the villager's name when they are barely visible on the screen.  Be careful not to call them when they are standing too close!
If you are at default or just friends level, they will look around.
If you are high level of friends, they'll turn around and wave.

Set up a PWP and after it's completion villagers are more likely to suggest new ones. Alternatively, use the diving/empty pocket trick and this will trigger a villager response, it might not always be a request, but they should want to talk to you about something.

You put on your bathing suit and then go swim for 4 or 5 minutes. You don't even have to do anything...you can just float there if you want (lol and get stung by jelly fish!).

When you get back out and run past a nieghbor or 2 one of them will be excited to see you and may suggest a PWP to you.
You can empty your pockets before you do this and your neighbors will be less likely to ask you to trade things or sell things to them.
They wont always suggest a PWP from doing this...but 1 villager should always be excited to see you from this (where they run up to you urgently wanting to talk).

You don't have a bench or a microphone... okay.  The yellow bench is available as one of the default PWP.  You could build that for now if you want, and demolish it later when you get requests for something better.  The microphone is available for sale randomly in the Nookling's second store... I think it's T & T Mart.

Anyway, the important thing is to build friendship with the villagers.  If you're good friends, the swim trick can help you get more chances for them to ask, but if you aren't good friends they can run up to you 20 times a day and still won't ask for any PWP requests.  It's still helpful for racking up friendship points if they run up to you and ask you to do them a favour, like a house visit or bringing them a fruit or whatever.

It takes a long time to get pictures though.  I've had max friendship with 4 of my villagers for 2 weeks now, and I only got 2 of them to give pictures so far.  Both times it came in a thank you letter after one of those visits when they ask you to set a time to come over to the house.

You don't have to swim in order to encourage PWP requests.  You just have to empty your pockets and wallet and go hang out someplace where villagers rarely or never venture.  Stay there for at least five minutes (I do ten or fifteen, and take care of something else while I wait).

The reason swimming works well is that villagers cannot follow you, but it needn't even be that complicated.  My villagers never go behind Town Hall, or to the far northeast and northwest corners of my map, and never wander far down either side of the beach.

When you've waited a little while and you have no bells or items to interest them, go walk past a villager and see if it pings.  The villager may request a PWP.  It is more likely to spout some nonsense, give you an item, or ask for a new greeting/catchphrase.  Just keep at it.

I do not try very hard to get PWP requests, but I get one to three per week.

"Sit next to the villager.
If you don't look at each other, you are at default level.
If you look at each other, you are friends.
If you both look at each other and sit with happy facial expressions, you have high friendship level."


Man, I really want to try that out to see my friendship with other villagers but not once have anyone ever sat on a bench in my town. I even have a bench in an overcrowded area where they hang a lot at but still nobody sits down on them. So practically the benches are decoration in my town -.-'.

This thread made me think of a question. I am wanting to do the swimming trick. Can you leave your game in sleep mode while you are swimming, or do you actually have to have it open? Not sure how the time is counted.
