Question about giving non-sexual/harmless links to adult titles.

Hello, anyone in the IMDb staff. I've got a question as stated in this topic's title. I'll try to explain as good as I can.

Recently today I submitted "Datenshi Tachi no Kyouen", which is now added into the IMDb database. It's a very rare adult animation only released on Japanese VHS in 1985.

When it comes to linking, I have earlier read the fact "prurient content" will be automatically rejected. I know that, and that's fine for me. But so here's the part: When I attempted to submit that anime I just mentioned, I submitted an Anisearch link and a MyAnimeList link relevant to the title. These web pages are not pornographic, they are just a part of the harmless anime databases related to anime in general. Anisearch, however, has screenshots of the relevant anime, but none of the screenshots is particularly explicit. But yet I get "Needs Attention" and "Does not meet contribution guidelines".

So when I try to submit an adult title, how am I supposed to submit a harmless miscellaneous site relevant to that title without any problem, as long as the site is not prurient, because I am trying to follow the contribution rules as much as I can. But if I try to submit an adult title, and all of the sites relevant to the title are all prurient, something which would be unacceptable according to the IMDb rules, can the new title still be approved even without any miscellaneous link?

That's what I need to know.

These are the two links I attempted to submit along with the rest of the basic information:
https://myanimelist.net/anime/5540/Datenshi-tachi_no_Kyouen
https://www.anisearch.com/anime/4895,datenshi-tachi-no-kyouen

Hope for a helpful answer. Sincirely, Chribren. :-)
