Feedback World Locked

is this feedback?

So I got to play my second weekend. I stay logged in past the locked world for 2+ days and got to play with few people online.

Why is the world locked on some days and still the server is open?

This seems like a really bad idea, I'm now out leveled from my group and most people on the server. Also it makes other testers upset that others are able to play and they can't. It also makes testing much harder to do.

The world should either be open 100% of the time the servers are online, or everyone should be kicked when the world log in is locked.
I've not seen it said here on the forums but this is really just makes no sense. Everyone I know (15+ people playing beta) says this is bad. I know a few people that will not get the beta to test it because of this reason, I know a few that stopped doing beta altogether because of it.

I think it also affects feedback as you will only be mostly getting feedback from hardliners that will push past this glaring issues to give feedback.

This started off as a courtesy to those who don't live in our time zone and/or wanted to play a little further past midnight with their friends. It has turned into an AFK fest which will likely be addressed in the near future with an auto-AFK, followed by an auto-AFK kick. The servers need "locked" time for reboots, new deployments, internal tests, etc. Lastly, we don't want players burning out too quickly with the current limited content so we keep the servers locked Mon/Tues/Wed (Thursday they are locked for potential hot fixes for bugs found on Wednesday).
