Checking the dates on this thread, it doesn't look like it's been much of an issue other than some isolated case a few months ago. :P
Generally, the biggest issue with running unlock dungeons is the cost and teaching new players the basics of "how not to kill the entire group." (The Brain is an a-hole) It takes about 100k per character in shuttle fees + the cost of buffs. (Which rarely anyone ever tips for) - So for a leader(s), it's normally an expense with little to no reward, a waste of time when no one follows directions and an inconvenience when some players are expecting to be able to do the run with their 5th and 6th Holo of Master Architect + Master Ranger. (It has happened...) This + p3cAd0R's post.
That aside, if you are still need your unlock, see below.

There was a template for posting dungeon runs somewhere
, which may be what Parth is talking about. It wasn't as intricate as what you're implying, but posting a time+date normally gets the job done. Making friends and asking who will be available at some date and time in general chat is usually the best.
I think we're planning on making it an "at minimum," monthly event thing. I'm not in a position to state any details, but hopefully we have it organized by the time you are unlocking.
Either way, last week we ran two full unlock runs back to back. Sure, I was broke by the end of the second set of runs, but we did it lol.
Best thing to do is read up on the dungeons, [1
], have some 80%+ armor and a decent template. Then, once a group is set up, let the leader pull and follow directions. There's a lot of tricks to make the run go smoothly.
Another good thing to do is do the dungeon runs even if you're not ready to unlock. I probably ran 3 or 4 Alumn's and a Pirate + Yavin before I ever did my unlock.
