Hi @wphilpott11 and welcome to the Community!

This reference in JQL is relative to the current moment. And so:

created < -3d

means that you will return issues created longer than 3 days ago (smaller than now minus three days).


created > 3d

is a statement for wizards and people capable of predicting the future, as this should return issues that will be created more than 3 days in the future (bigger than now plus 3 days).

So if you are trying to find issues more than 3 days old, the first query should return the right results.

Hope this helps!
