It's especially strange because we can still queue for the lvl 50 FPs on both HM and SM. The end result is an endless stream of groups spamming gen chat on fleet looking for HM KP and EV.

I would really like to see the lvl 50 HM Ops added to the GF at lvl 55. Well, at least HM EV and KP. Even at lvl 55, I'm not sure I'd trust a bunch of pugs to make it through the mechanics of HM EC in one piece.
Actually, if you have people of average 55 endgame gear, HM EC is doable by even groups that have no idea what they are doing (it just takes a little longer).

Must still get stuck on firebrand and stormcaller, even high geared 55s

Several of you seem to have gotten off topic, not everyone, but a few, fps at 50 are not what was asked, the original question asked about group finder including HM EV/KP etc into them at 55, regardless as to whether this can be done as a 4 man, its been proven that eg EV SM can be 4maned in old rakata gear, but regardless, im inclined to think it should be in group finder at 55, even just for convenience as to not needing to stand round on fleet spamming chat and hoping to find a group. For those of you comfortable with taking that approach, then good for you but I question if you understand that society is built by those with money for convenience sake, and this game is no different, the group finder tool is an example of this.

On Dalborra we have /Endgame chat, which is a custom chat channel that was made and promoted by various people. It can be used for organising Ops, amongst other things. Someone on your server (if not you, maybe a prominent person or guild) could do the same and with some time and promotion (on the server forum, General chat on Fleet and Dailies planets), you should have a large number of people /cjoin it.

On topic, I would agree that Level 55s should be able to queue for Level 50 Ops.

^^^^ This.

I've been DPS'ing and then Tanking HM EC with two different Guilds (one Republic, one Imperial) for the last month or so. My Pub group got through it in three goes over one week, thanks in large part to clueful DPS who had cleared it before, then cleared it in one night our second go around. The Imperial group beat itself bloody on Firebrand and Stormcaller over the course of three different weeks before finally getting past them, because it requires every player knowing the special tactics for their role and then executing them well enough if not perfectly. I lost count of how many attempts we made against them Imp-side before finally beat them.

And, yes, all but one of us were Level 55 and everyone was at gear rating or better.

Can't believed this still ain't fixed. Crappiest customer service ever. Still no reason for me to sub. Just no point.

If you're not meant to do old content you wouldn't have the option to queue for level 50 hard mode flashpoints. So I'm not sure why people would even argue against the ability to queue up for level 50 hard mode (and story mode) operations at level 55. Of course the ability should be there.
