Bokonon_Lives is an incredibly manly user of cultish status who has earned the respect of a small but moderately loyal handful of B8'ers but who only very rarely makes anybody's Top Favorite Users lists, with the notable exception of earning 72nd place in Ayvuir's second annual Board 8's Top 100 Users contest and 126th in Smurf's 2007 edition of his Top 500 Users List. He is regarded as intelligent and pretty funny as a regular on the board, but he is not a valued contributor to the GameFAQs database, as he is not a particularly dedicated gamer, and he only rarely does anything notable.
He is also known for frequently posting things made of win and awesome, notably a very popular Fresh Prince topic in early 2007 that brought back the fad for a while and brought about some annoyance.
On Wednesday, August 29, 2007, Bokonon_Lives was inducted into The Crew. Less than four hours later, he left their ranks, stating, "This place sucks, I quit."
There is currently a grassroots agenda to evict Bokonon_Lives from the Internets for making too much sense.
In his early days, he was often confused with bokunokuso, as the first three letter of both their names are the same. The banning of bokunokuso proved that they were not the same person, as Bokonon still has an account.
In his first successful user contest showing, he won Repus_Yortsed's Eliminate a User Contest and recieved a copy of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. Incidentally, Bokonon was one of the few users in the contest who did not actually own a Nintendo DS.
Other momentous contest showings include making it to the final round of the first SHINEtest competition after receiving the very last SHINE Award of the season due to a comical Zachnorn impersonation.
When a fellow user made a topic stating simply that he was bored and demanded entertainment from Board 8, Bokonon_Lives posted the first three books of War and Peace in their entirety, literally copying and pasting segments from the novel nonstop for hours late at night, spamming the topic until he just couldn't take it anymore. Miraculously, he was never modded for it.
On February 16, 2008, Boko tried his luck again, posting the first three books in a single topic again, this time finishing off by segueing into Bel-Air lyrics, his second major Fresh Prince'ing on Board 8.
Bokonon_Lives is the proprietor of the Best. Attack. Ever. tournament, which was held multiple times but has since been retired indefinitely.
He was also heavily involved in multiple editions of the Board 8 Writing Contest, two of which he ran himself.
Also, Silvercross once turned one of his threads into a dreamy nugget of joy.
And he's the best thing since sliced bread and Chrono Trigger - OMEGAMANGXE
His list, "Top Ten Most Broken Features of Dungeons & Dragons Version 3.5", has been the source of great controversy. Reactions have ranged from "Whoever wrote this is a (expletive deleted) idiot" to "The utter lack of undertanding of the game and it mechanics in this post must either be Best Accident-Troll or sheer ignorance". Though he has been asked multiple times point-blank whether the list was written in sincerity, the ultimate question of trolling versus ignorance remains not entirely clear. The only thing that is universally agreed upon is that the content of the list itself is far from accurate.
