XF 1.5 Should I make (small) style changes against the Default theme or create a child?

    I'm using the default XF theme on a site.

    I've got a small handful of template edits and style property changes, mostly adding ad tags to the site, etc.

    Should I create a child theme of the default theme for my customizations? Or should I make the changes directly to the default XF theme?

    I do not have debug mode enabled, so I'm not editing the master templates.

    No need for a child style if you're using the default XF style for yourself. Technically it's already considered a "child" and will show any outdated templates because it's under the Master Style.
