Code:
game.Players.PlayerAdded:connect(function(p) yada yada yada)


I need a little help understanding how to use them, it looks like they might just shorten the code a bit; Maybe even be very useful.

What you see there is what's called an anonymous function. Basically, you chop a function's connection line off, stick it on the top, and end the function with a close of the parentheses.
It's called an anonymous function simply 'cause it has no name.

Code:
 
local m = Instance.new("Hint")
m.Parent = workspace
m.Text = ""
game.Players.PlayerAdded:connect(function (p)
m.Text = "Welcome to the game, " ..p.Name.. "!"
wait(4)
m.Text = ""
end)

They are good for linking together functions that you would need multiple variables for. Especially if you want to connect an event that only gives you part of what you need.
