Your missing slots are most likely a mistake, but 

http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/119305-faq-the-new-world/

that has been up and easily navigated to from the home page since November 9th.

If you look at it, it breaks down how the character situation works for this merge in detail.
I can understand people not always reading every bit of news or patch notes but when it's a server merge common sense should have kicked in at some point to look into the details so you wouldn't be surprised by anything other than delays. 
The 24 hour deletion has been a thing since launch.

14b. What happens if a player ends up with too many characters after the merge?

If a player ends up with more characters than character slots after the merge, characters are sorted from the highest level to the lowest level. However only the first characters in the available slots are playable, and the other characters will be locked. Do not worry, the information of all existing characters will be kept when the merge is completed.

If you delete a character, the next highest level character in line will show up on the list. The characters in locked slots can only be deleted, and they will be automatically deleted after 90 days. All characters created before the merge will have a 10 minute delete confirmation time.

UPDATE: The deletion timer of 10 minutes was not yet implemented, but will be during the maintenance of 7 December. So currently it is still a 24 hour deletion confirmation time.

^^^ - they are making it 10 minutes after next weeks patch.

Please note that the order of your characters in the Character Selection screen does not match the order of locked characters.

They said the CD for deleting characters after the merge is only 10 minutes.

No. CD is ONLY 10 minutes per deletion. Not working for you?  Sorry, just saw the update.

Ok, I cannot play the characters I had on the other servers. I can only delete them.  I get that. But I had 12 characters on my main server, all over 40 or 50 that I want to keep. I also had a bunch of expensive stuff on my other characters I want to delete eventually. If I cannot access them at all, how can I get my stuff off of them before I delete them?

Stack your contribution into one warehouse somewhere and pile all those goods into the warehouse then delete the character

If you cannot access them it's because they have a lower level than your other characters and you should have removed all expensive stuff from their inventory cause you knew they were going to be locked/deleted.

Thats the issue. I cannot access the characters I had on the other servers. Example:

Main server = 12 characters ( all over 40 and 50 ) Keeping all.
server #2 = 1 character ( expensive stuff on it I want to get )  Will delete afterwards.
server #3 = 1 character ( expensive stuff on it I want to get )  Will delete afterwards.

So now I have 14 characters and cannot access the lowest 2 to get my items off of them before deletion.

I cannot believe that they said there would be a 10 minute deletion wait time that got screwed up and now saying it won't go in until the next maintenance which is NEXT WEEK. Are you kidding me?! By the time that's patched in who's going to actually need it? By then I can have all of mine manually deleted it.

Patch it is NOW imo.

They why didn't you plan ahead and put all that stuff in the warehouses?  You had tons of warehouses you could have dumped it all in.   You could also have simply leveled those two other characters to level 50 so that they would be higher than your main server characters so you could then just move stuff off them and delete them.  You had plenty of time to prepare for this.  They explained exactly what they were doing and you should have forseen this problem easily.  This is exactly why I spent a couple hours to level those characters above my main server alts.

Well that's your problem they said on many occasions they will not be accessible and can only be deleted, so they said to make sure you had everything you wanted to keep in your warehouse as they would all get merged.
