Most of my PWP came from going about my daily routine and attending the PWP ceremony. While I was watering the flowers I've had villager run up, request a PWP and than run away. After the ceremony they can ask for PWP.
I've tried the wet suit trick but didn't get a lot. Found going about my daily routine was better.
Best time to get PWP from Cranky villagers is 3am to 359am. They are the only type up at that hour. In my 2nd town I have two Cranky villagers.
Oh, thanks for that tip! I know Normal villagers are the only ones up at 6am, so that's probably the best time to get a PWP from them.
Honestly, if you try the method for an hour or two, you'll get a PWP guaranteed. However, you get villagers to recommend them quite easily by just playing a lot in my experience. I got PWP suggestions 3 days in a row when I wasn't even going for them!
Good for you! I myself finally got the fire pit too a couple of days ago and the next day the Solar Panel project!
Which method of ping resetting did you use? I used the wet suit trick, and also ensured that I had no money whatsoever in my pockets, filled it up with untradeable items with villagers such as flowers. I don't really care if I have a certain personality in my town but would much rather replace this villager with someone I like, so I ensured that I got all of the PWPs I wanted from the Jock personality before I kick them out to move in some of my favorite villagers via Amiibo cards. I trapped this villager by digging holes so he couldn't roam around the town freely. Then I journeyed off to the water, when I reach the corner of the ocean I time it for roughly about 5 minutes (slightly longer sometimes).
I walk back up and wait for a ping. I either get the silly 12 meter dash ping, the "stare into my eyes" ping, "who's the strongest" ping, the "I wanna hang at your house" ping, or finally.. *drumrolls* PWP time!!
I did this every day and saved and quit within an hour or else you'll get that goofy dialouge "You look exhausted! Why don't you take a break?" until I finally got a PWP. I've never heard anybody ever getting more than 1 PWP request per day, if you did though awesome job!
Finally kicked this villager out and moved in one of my favorites!
Just living life to the fullest, don't forget to smile today!

I use the exact same method! I just don't bother trapping a villager because there are PWPs I'd like from various personalities. I have trapped a villager in the past and felt bad about it... (sorry Tia!)
If I recall correctly, in my old town I managed to get 2 PWPs in a day...but it took a whole day of pinging method!
ive had 2 towns now in acnl, both are/were aged, yet neither have had the police station, the first town was almost 2 years old when I finally gave up and created a new town out of boredom, idk how I didn't get that freakin police station...
love nitpicking animal crossing as well as other games
ACC -3 hours
Prompted: To get the Police Station is random. So you'll just have to wait for one of your villagers to ping you and request it!
Superpie: The pinging method is a way to get villagers to ping you more often, in hopes of them possibly requesting a PWP from you. This method is used because getting a PWP requested is not too common.
You simply drop all your bells in your house, fill your pockets with flowers (or anything your villagers can't buy off you). You then don your wetsuit and swim to the farthest possible point in the ocean and leave your character there for 7-10 mins. You then go back to town and hope villagers ping you! (Of course, most of the time it won't be a PWP so you have to be patient.)
