赤毛I would have called this entry simply yasui, the same you did with nikui. For me, the level is JPLT3 rather than JPLT2. The examples I added are caught from JPLT3 list of vocabulary and grammar points which appears in past examination papers ( 
tigerthey 赤毛 I think your rigth about the name for it. I have often said that it would be good to standardize the entry format a little better, but then I forget to follow my own advice lolol thanks.

The translation should read...

The stairs are wet.

They are slippery, so please be careful.
(They're slippery, so please use caution.)

赤毛Nasuさんへ Thanks for your translation. I modified my example according to your alert. In my contribution, the Japanese sentence use to be copied from other sites or from books, but the English one is mine, and my English will be improving all time but very slowly, because I don't use English outside of this site. Feel free to modify all my English sentences and mark them "neutral" after. But keep in mind that a literally translated sentence is easier to understand in a scholar point of view. Tae Kim said it in :
"the English translations for the examples will also be as literal as possible to convey the Japanese sense of the meaning".
