Snow golems actually do have a current use: Snow farming. A lot of what you're saying is too nonsensical and an unnecessary hassle for the rest of us, who DO like snow golems in their current state.

The griefing capabilities are limited. Snow is easy to get rid of, but the only real griefing it can do is to your crops. And why would a griefer use a snow golem to destroy crops when he/she could destroy them faster? Also, snowballs normaly do zero hearts unless it is a blaze or an enderdragon. I guess I agree with everything else, so 66% support.
No, they can be used for traps, and to hold mobs off. Never seen them used in griefing...
Who's going to line their house with weak, snow trailing mobs that throw snowballs
that deal a half heart of damage? And are also pointless to combine as there is an
invincibility period for each hit, rendering combined fire utterlly useless.
Why not? If you've got the extra materials they can hold mobs off, and they don't deal any damage to mobs other than the Wither, Blazes and Magma Cubes (I think Magma Cubes). So I can agree they are extremely weak, but they can hold mobs back away from your base, and if you have a moat of some sorts, they can knock mobs into them. Combined far just adds more knockback, that's pretty much all snow golems do is provide knockback. They can also be used for infinite snow farming.
They trail snow on 100% of the blocks they touch. Make 16 of them inside, on top of, and under
someone's house- they'll completely cover it in unlimited snow that warm air will not remove automatically.
And boy is it easy for griefers to access this, because of the next issue.
They can only trail snow in a few biomes, and they only leave a snow trail on certain blocks, not all of them. It's extremely easy to get rid of snow, all you need is a bucket of water... And again never seen or heard of someone getting griefed with snow golems.
Make them have a 1/64 chance when entering/leaving a block to create a Thin Snow block.
If they are in a snowy biome, they will create Thin Snow blocks 100% of the time, as is the
previous version to all biomes.
I prefer the snow-trailing effect the way it is.
: They're too damn cheap. Too damned cheap. One pumpkin, and 2 snow blocks.
They are cheap because they have minimum uses...That and the fact that the current shape is the size of the snowman.
I propose this:
All golem types from now on (Iron Included) must rest on 1 block of Soul Sand.
As well as giving an additional use to Soul Sand, it restrains the creation of Golems
to only post-Nether worlds, and lines up with the lore. (My lore here being that Heads release
soul sand when broken, and that the Wither structure is made from soul sand.)
No, I don't think soul sand is necessary, though I get the concept, if you are going to make snow golems more expensive/difficult to produce, then they need to be buffed first, otherwise it further depletes the use of these golems. And as far as Iron Golems go, I prefer the current building "recipe" no need for soul sand. But again I get the concept you are putting across. (By the way I have seen the part about you buffing them.)
You now need one soul sand, 4 snow blocks in a T shape along the Iron Golem's pattern,
and 1 pumpkin.
This is illogical, the snow golem is not shaped like a T at all, it's in the shape of a snowman, building it in the shape of an Iron Golem, but it spawning as a snowman makes little sense.
As far as your buffs go, I'm undecided, I want more use for the snow golems though, most definitely.
They don't have to have a point. If you think about it, a lot of things in minecraft we don't need. Snow Golems don't need fixed, they don't have a problem. I do sometimes get annoyed when people post suggestions to change things. Mojang made them how they wanted them, so they most likely won't change them.
I find the current golem fine as-is. No support, sorry.

I hate people who complain. I hate spiders. I hate people who own an Xbox One. I hate people who like sandbox games. I hate people who like first person shooters. I hate people who like explosions. I hate people who like video games. I hate people who are hateful. I hate people that don't like spam. I hate people who like cake. I hate people who type in proper grammar and spell words properly on the internet. I hate hypocrites.
It's pretty clear that snow golems are not gonna get any changes. I mean, they've been the way they are for 2 years and it might be best that way. They aren't that expensive to make and can be used in endless snow farming. We already have capable wolves and huge tough iron golems. I don't think we need anything more beyond that.
No, OP. Flint is cheap.
On soul sand, and with a flint, it would be balanced to make them hit 1 (half a heart). Because it is easy to build lots of snow golems and the enemies would be always stunned and will eventually die. Besides, that would imply snowballs do the same damage, and it would be too OP to kill any mob with snowballs dealing 2 hearts. No support!
